Fire destroyed much of Al Linder’s townhouse adjacent to Hidden Valley Park last evening, part of the Valley Pond Townhome Association. His townhouse is on Hidden Valley Drive, right around the corner from our townhouse. Al was not at home when the fire broke out but arrived shortly afterwards.
The smoke damage displaced residents in the two units to the north of his, Don and Shannon Mills, and George and Leslie Selvig. Sandy Pieri, a volunteer with the Rice – LeSueur Red Cross Chapter and a townhouse owner on the same block, was on hand to help arrange temporary housing for the three affected homeowers.
The Northfield News posted a story, Fire engulfs townhome, on their web site last night at about 8:30.
