Sheriff's deputies joined the Sebeka Fire Department on the scene Monday afternoon at the Jeff and Ellen Sams residence, along 151st Avenue in Wadena County. Though Sebeka firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze and the exterior of the house didn't look too badly burned, the sheriff's office said the damage to the interior of the home made it a total loss.
