More than 30 firefighters from Dent, Perham and Vergas responded to a house fire at a Marion Lake residence Friday. Dent Fire Chief Curt Seifert said the main floor of the home was already completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The home was a complete loss, "but there were no injuries reported to me. Everyone went home safe. With what we had to work with from the time we got there...we got it extinguished in the best way we could," Seifert said.  Submitted photo
