A house was destroyed by a fire in Elk River overnight Tuesday.

Fire officials say the fire started in the back of the house but strong winds caused it to spread.

Three people were home at the time but were able to get out. One person was treated for injuries at the scene.

Spot fires also flared up around the home, so the DNR was called in to deal with them.

At this point, additional details have not been released.
