WAVERLY, MN – No one was injured as a fire destroyed a Waverly home early Friday morning.

According to Waverly Assistant Fire Chief Mike Cody, the department was called to the fire at 6611 Crofoot Ave. SW. at about 1:35 a.m.

“We arrived to a fully engulfed house fire,” Cody said.

It appears the fire started in the front of the house, Cody said. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal Office.

Montrose and Howard Lake fire departments provided mutual aid. A total of 28 firefighters responded. The Wright County Sheriff’s Office, Ridgeview Ambulance, and the American Red Cross also assisted at the scene.

The Waverly Fire Department was on scene until about 10 a.m.

Cody emphasized the importance of smoke detectors.

“Smoke detectors save lives,” he said. “That made the difference. It woke them up and allowed them to exit the home. From the time they called 911 to the first engine, it was about 7 minutes. Fires grow quickly.”

Donations are being collected for the Zehowski family, which was displaced by the fire. Contact Emily Zehowski on Facebook for more information.

A GoFundMe campaign has also been established at
