This week, CAFD personnel trained L&M staff on how to extinguish a fire.  A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives.LM 1LM 2

 

WP 20150210 012CAFD, Arrowhead, Culver and West Brevator were paged for a structure fire at 16:08 Tuesday afternoon at 4567 Twin Lakes Drive.  Upon arrival units found a single family home fully involved with fire.  All residents were able to escape the home without injury along with 4 dogs and a cat.  Two cats remain missing.

 WP 20150210 016Units were able to knock down the major fire in about 20 minutes, but spent the next several hours working to extinguish pockets of fire in the walls, collapsed roof, and floor.  Due to the rural nature of the home water had to be transported by tanker and East Brevator, Grand Lake and Industrial fire departments were called for additional tankers.

One firefighter was injured and transported to Community Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation. 

021015 1At 10:16 this morning CAFD units responded to a two vehicle accident at Hwy 33 and I35 in Cloquet.  Battalion 3, Rescue 1, Medics 9 & 11, Engine 31 and Chief 1, were on scene for almost an hour.

Three people from one vehicle were transported to Cloquet Community Memorial Hospital.  Two people in stable condition and one in critical condition.   There were no injuries to the occupants of the other vehicle.  The accident remains under investigation by the Minnesota State Patrol.
