A home in a mobile home park in north Des Moines was destroyed by fire on Tuesday around 5 p.m.
Firefighters arrived on the scene after receiving a call from passerbyers who had spotted the fire. However, it was difficult for fire trucks to actually reach the scene because the road leading to the mobile home park had not been cleared after a freezing rain on Monday. Although they were able to extinguish the fire before it spread to other residences, the home was destroyed. Luckily, no one was hurt in the fire.

Fire inspectors are trying to determine how a residential fire that started in the kitchen of a Steldahl home killed a woman in the second floor bedroom of her home. When emergency personnel arrived at the house, smoke alarms were sounding and there was a blaze downstairs, but the only person in the house was unable to escape. Fire fighters were able to extinguish the flames quickly and damage is estimated at around $60,000. It is unknown why the victim wasn’t able to flee from the burning building.
A neighbor saw the blaze in the early morning hours of last Wednesday. The neighbor reported having seen an orange glow coming from the house and then witnessing a burning piece of the house fall to the ground.
Our deepest condolences go out to the friends and family of all those involved in this tragedy.
