• Residents uninjured, but home ‘probably a total loss’

BROOKINGS – A Brookings family is without a home this week after fire destroyed much of the interior of its residence in Western Estates.

Brookings firefighters were called to 105 Wagon Wheel Circle shortly after 2 Monday afternoon.

“We were called in for a ‘fire going through the roof,’ which is not a good thing for any structure,” said Fire Chief Darrell Hartmann.

By the time his firefighters were on the scene, Hartmann said, “it had spread up a back wall into the ceiling.”
