KASSON, Minn. - No injuries were reported but a firefighter was dealing with heat-related illness during a house fire Friday in Dodge County.

Authorities were called after 10 a.m. to 25222 Co. Hwy 34 just on the outskirts of Kasson.

Smoke was seen coming from the home and the flames resulted in a large hole in the home. The house is a total loss.

Nobody was in the home when the fire started, and firefighters were able to recover medications for a boy who lives at the residence.

Many of the firefighters who responded to the call will be put on a 48-hour do-not-call list so they can recover.

The Red Cross is working with the family to find them a place to stay.

We will have more information as it becomes available.
