MAPLE GROVE, Minn. (WCCO) – Six people are looking for a new place to live after a late-night house fire in Maple Grove Tuesday.

The fire started at about 11 p.m. One of the people living in the four-plex on Yorktown Lane told the fire chief he had just turned on his sauna before the fire broke out.

Flames spread through the home and into the attic.

Authorities said the building’s gas meters also caught fire.

Two units have heavy damage and the other two sustained mostly smoke damage.

Damage is estimated at about $200,000.

It was not immediately clear what may have started the fire.
