No one was hurt in a Friday afternoon fire that destroyed a Star Lake trailer home near Dent, according to the county sheriff’s office.

on County Road 4
Two men were hurt early Sunday morning after their pickup truck hit a field approach on County Highway 4, east of Lake Lida.
According to law enforcement, a 27-year-old Moorhead man was driving east on the road near 287th Avenue when he drifted off the road and hit a field approach, which lifted the truck into the air. The driver and his passenger, a 25-year-old Mooreton, N.D. man, were both hurt, and a passerby discovered the truck and took the men to St. Mary’s Hospital in Detroit Lakes.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor. The men’s names have not been released.
