A rural Milaca home was destroyed by fire on the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 11.

The Milaca Fire Department was called to 14622 Green Meadow Road at 3:21 p.m. after the Mille Lacs County Communications Center received a 911 call from a neighbor stating that the single-family home of Terry Harris was on fire.

The fire began in the garage, according to Milaca Assistant Fire Chief Craig Billings. The garage was already consumed by fire when the first Milaca firefighters arrived on scene.

The Foreston and Princeton fire departments were called in to provide fire-fighting support.

Firefighters cleared the scene shortly before 6 p.m. A cause of the fire has not been determined, Billings said.
