Garage Fire on Chestnut Avenue

Sunday evening Battalion 1, CAFD Stations 1, 2 and three responded to a garage fire on the 500 block of Chestnut Avenue. When Battalion 1 arrived, he found one garage heavily involved. Two other nearby garages, a camper and a SUV were also burning.

This fire started about three hours after the power went out in Cloquet which left the City's water pressure and volume lower than normal. The quick attack and extinguishment by CAFD firefighters prevented the destruction of the other two garages.

The initial garage was a total loss. The cause is currently under investigation. One firefighter received minor injuries, and was treated and released from the local hospital.
