"It did not get into the house, but the garage is pretty much a total loss," Beaver said. "It appears to have been caused by plugging a electric heater into a power strip."

The home is owned and occupied by the John Walz family. Firefighters were on scene two hours. The Estherville Fire Department was assisted by Estherville Ambulance, Wallingford Fire Department, and Estherville Police Department.
