Updated: Class A Auto Body In Bemidji Severely Damaged In Saturday Fire
Class A Auto Body in Bemidji is a total loss after a Saturday afternoon fire. It’s presumed to have started somewhere around 4 p.m. Firefighters and police were on the scene almost immediately.
Witnesses at the Corner Bar, right across the street from the auto body shop, reported hearing a loud boom before turning around and seeing the start of the fire.
The fire burned for most of Saturday night, and firefighters spent Sunday extinguishing small rekindles. Everyone who lived in the apartments above the auto body shop was accounted for, and firefighters say there were no injuries.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. We’ll have a more in-depth report Tuesday night on Lakeland News.
