NUFD responds to house fire
The New Ulm Fire Department was called to a house fire at 626 Payne St. N. at 3:08 p.m. Sunday. New Ulm Fire Chief Paul Macho said nobody was injured in the fire at the Nina Lovell residence that was caused by smoking materials. Macho said there were layers of siding on the house, including slate, that kept the blaze from spreading further. Three fire trucks and 21 firefighters were called to the fire. Firefighters left the scene 25 minutes after the call was received.
