Vehicle Fire Results in Loss of Garage

Several area fire departments responded to a large 40′ by 80′ garage fire on Saginaw Rd.

A caller reported seeing smoke from the building shortly after 5:00 p.m.

Solway Township Volunteer Firefighters arrived on scene shortly after deputies from the the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office.

The source of the fire was quickly determined to be an industrial food delivery vehicle that had been parked in the garage a few hours earlier.

The fire was extinguished by firefighters.

An electrical issue within the vehicle is the suspected cause.

The vehicle itself was a total loss and the garage sustained heavy smoke damage.

Estimates are in excess of $50,000.
