No one was inside the residence at the time of the incident, and the house was not a total loss from the fire, said Albert Lea Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Laskowske.

Damage from the fire was visible on the outside of the house through an upper window. It is unclear how much more of the house sustained damage. A damage estimate has not yet been formed.

The Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office, Albert Lea police and fire departments and Gold Cross Ambulance assisted on scene.

Online property records list Rudy Reyes as the primary taxpayer of the address.
