Fire displaces Jenkins family


A 13-year-old boy, who was home alone at the time, knew exactly what to do Saturday, Jan. 18, when he heard the smoke detectors go off at the residence located on the 4000 block of 12th Avenue Southwest in Jenkins.

Pequot Lakes Fire Chief Tom Nelson said the boy heard the detectors go off so he left the single-wide mobile home and called 911. No one else was in the home, owned by Thomas Jungle, at the time of the fire.

Firefighters received the call at 10:30 a.m.
