Devastating house fire in Millet area Oct. 17

Tetlock family has GoFundMe set up after losing everything they own

A Millet-area family is rebuilding their lives after a destructive residential fire Oct. 17 left their home unlivable.

The Millet Fire Department responded to the fire call early Oct. 17 just outside of town.

Capt. Trevor Palmer, public information officer, Millet Fire Department told The Pipestone Flyer Oct. 17, “In terms of details of this fire, the info I can give is that it was fully involved upon our arrival.

“We were dispatched shortly after 2 a.m. Oct. 17 and arrived to a fire that had already gone through the roof. Cause is not known and undetermined if it will be released once the investigators complete their work.

“When we left the scene after declaring the fire out, the roof was entirely gone from the building, but the main floor walls are standing – this is evidence of our crews work this morning to save what we could (for the most part, only that which was already burning was lost and we managed to save the rest). In a firefighters world, that’s a successful firefight.”

Relief fund available

Stacie and Spencer Tetlock were the residents of the home. A GoFundme page has been set up to raise funds to help out the family: https://www.gofundme.com/tetlock-house-fire
