No one was hurt in a house fire in New York Mills Wednesday morning, according to Fire Chief Reed Jacobson.

Two brothers, Logyn and Jesse Saewert were home at the time.


"I woke up and my room was black," Logyn said.

His brother Jesse had escaped the house and called 911.

Both brothers were running on lack of sleep, as a earlier family crisis had them at the emergency room overnight, not returning home until after 4 a.m.
