CLOQUET - Cloquet Area Fire District Stations 1, 2 & 3 responded to heavily involved garage fire at 2546 Big Lake Road in Cloquet at 10:14 Friday night.
Upon arrival units found a large detached garage with heavy fire involving the enclosed 12X24 living space in the rear of the garage.
Fire was already extending into the attic space and burning through the roof.
Tanker operations were required to supply water to the fire due to the lack of hydrants, and a long driveway necessitated the use of 5" hose to relay water 600' from the roadway to the scene.
The garage is considered a total loss and no injuries were reported.
CAFD Fire Investigators and K9 were called, and the fire does not appear to be suspicious and remains under investigation.
