Chippewa County House Fire Caused By Sauna’s Wood Stove

A sauna’s wood stove is to blame for a house fire in Sault Ste. Marie.

Firefighters in Chippewa County say the homeowners were renovating, and the sauna did not have dry wall or insulation in it.

They say while the sauna doors were open, a quick gust of wind swept through, pushing the wood stove’s fire to the home that sits nearby.

No one was hurt.

The fire is still under investigation.
