Fire destroys Oelwein home


Fire crews spent Monday afternoon on the scene of a large house fire on Oelwein's southwest side.

A fire at the home of Lea Forney started around 4:30 p.m. When Forney returned home from work, she opened her door to find smoke inside her two-story home on 4th Avenue Southwest.

The fire chief says the fire started in the back of the house on the first floor and spread to the roof, destroying the home.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
