Family members displaced after overnight house fire in Afton
Three family members safely escaped a burning house early today in Afton.
Firefighters responded to a fully engulfed blaze at about 1 a.m. at 4696 Trading Post Trail. Lower St. Croix Fire Department Chief Chris Peterson said the home was "basically a total loss," and displaced the three adults living there.
Washington County tax records indicate the home, valued in 2012 at $454,600, is owned by Michael and Sandra Conroy.
