DULUTH, Minn. – Just before 4:00 a.m. Friday crews were called to battle a fully engulfed garage fire in rural Duluth.

Duluth, Rice Lake, Lakewood, Hermantown and 148th Air Guard fire departments along with the Gold Cross were on scene when FOX 21 arrived.

One of the homeowners was checked for smoke inhalation and released.

The fire was contained to the garage and all cars and contents inside were a total loss.

The home suffered some smoke and water damage only.

In total, there were $175,000 dollars in damage done.
