A fire on the final day of 2018 caused extensive damage to a Coon Rapids home.
The flames broke out around 9:45 a.m. on New Year's Eve at this home on the 11500 block of Olive Street. Fire crews arrived to find flames visible from the back of the home and smoke showing from the attic.
Firefighters were able to knock down the main fire quickly but were on the scene for more than five hours putting out hot spots and doing overhaul work.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
