The Cloquet Area Fire District Stations 1, 2 and 3 responded to a fully involved garage fire in Brevator Township on Wednesday evening. When Battalion 1 arrived on scene fire was already venting through the roof and rear walls of the structure. A quick attack from Engine 1 knocked down the fire but the damage was already severe.
Carlton, Industrial and Culver fire departments were called for water tankers due to an initial report of a house being threatened by fire but were cancelled once the fire was brought under control. No people or pets were injured by the fire.
As is routine, our fire investigators were called to the scene and are working to determine the cause of the fire.
