A fire of unconfirmed origin destroyed a pickup truck parked beside this house in Pitcher Park a week ago Saturday, on Feb. 29 at just a few minutes before 12 p.m.

The exterior of the house was damaged from the heat of the blaze which sent thick black smoke billowing into the air.

There were no reported injuries in this incident, however, and Devils Lake firefighters made short work of the fire. Devils Lake Fire Chief Jim Moe reports that the State Fire Marshall has been to investigate the incident, but has submitted no official report at this time.
