"The injuries all three sustained were pretty serious," Ida County Sheriff Wade Harriman said.

Pictures of the aftermath showed a home reduced to rubble.

"You’ve got the injured people that we want to triage and get out of here as quickly as possible for medical care and obviously, you’re trying to secure the scene as well, to make sure that, you know, first responders can come in and do their job safely," he said.
