Wadena firefighters contained a fire at about 11 a.m. Friday, April 29 at an apartment at 823 5th St. SW in Wadena.

Fire Chief Dean Uselman said the cause was determined to be accidental and most likely originated with the stove being left on. The kitchen was damaged to the point where it would have to be gutted and reconstructed, and there was heavy smoke damage throughout the apartment, he said.
