Oronoco, MN (KROC AM News) - An investigator with the State Fire Marshal’s Office was contacted early Tuesday by the Olmsted County Sheriff’s office about a garage fire in Oronoco.

It is the same site where a woman was found dead after her house went up in flames earlier this year.

The sheriff’s office says the garage and a vehicle inside were destroyed by the fire. It was reported by a neighbor around 2:00 am.

The sheriff’s office says this is an active investigation.

The property is located at 710 5th St NW.

That’s where firefighters were called in July when the house that had been located there caught fire. After the fire was put out firefighters found the body of 82-year-old Ruth Oleson, the owner of the home.

News update: Rochester home hit by bullets.

Private 1960 Hilltop Rochester Minnesota Home Has Hidden Pool

Designed by Ellerbe and Company in 1959, this home isn't "a step back in time", but it is a step into the image you have about 1950's/60's homes from TV shows and movies. 

Plus, its super private, just up the hill from Bamber Valley Elementary. Most of the homes in that area are a marvel to see (take a walk up there sometimes, I think you'd really like it. Lots of trees and homes set way back). 

Enjoy this home at 2410 Hillside Lane SW in Rochester. It could be yours for just under $900,000.
