Firefighters helped put out a house fire in frigid temperatures early this morning outside of Bemidji.
On February 15, the Bemidji Fire Department responded to a report of a residential house fire at about 12:51 AM, on the 22000 block of County Road 9 in Hubbard County. When they arrived, they found fire coming from the roof and exterior of the home.
18 firefighters used three fire engines, three tenders, and a squad on scene. Firefighters were at the scene for about four hours and no injuries were reported even while battling the fire in temperatures of nearly 30 degrees below zero.
The fire caused extensive damage to the main floor and attic of the home, and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Bemidji Fire Department and the Minnesota State Fire Marshal’s Office. However, it does not appear to be suspicious in nature.
