A homeowner in Stearns County woke up Sunday morning to his house on fire, and it was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived at the scene.
Jason Michels, 44, called 911 at about 4:43 a.m. to report the entire side of his home at 30081 County Road 13 in Lake George Township was on fire, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office says.
Michels told police he woke up to find the fire underway. He was the only one home at the time, and was able to escape the building without injury.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. No other details were released.
