Rural Hawick family who lost their home in New Year's blaze work to put the pieces back together
Last year didn't end well for Tim and Lisa Wendlandt. Around 6:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve, Lisa Wendlandt came home to discover the family's rural Hawick home in a blaze. The fire quickly destroyed the house the couple had built 17 years ago.
Fire crews from New London, Spicer, Atwater and Paynesville fought the fire for about five hours in minus 10-degree weather but were unable to save the house, leaving the family homeless as midnight struck and 2010 began.
