House Fire 1

Flames erupt from the home of Jermaine Smith and Kelly Bell of Odanah. Bad River Fire Chief Jim Stone said the home was destroyed Monday morning as firefighters began searching for a cause.

Kelly Bell and Jermaine Smith lost everything they own except their service dog Daliah when they narrowly escaped their burning home on the Bad River Indian Reservation Monday morning.

“I ran out wearing nothing but my tank top and my underwear and Jermaine had only his underwear on,” said Bell, 41.

Firefighters pour water on the smoldering ruins of the mobile home at mid-morning. At one point in the fire, the roof at the rear of the structure collapsed.
