Rural Rochester Shed Fire Requires Two Visits by Firefighters
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Rochester firefighters had to return to the scene of a pole shed fire this afternoon after a fire in the structure apparently reignited.
Fire crews were first called to 6805 N. Broadway around 6:30 a.m. after receiving reports of smoke coming from the 30 x 100-foot building, located on the west side of North Broadway in an area south of 75th Street. Thick smoke, deep snow, and record cold temperatures hampered the efforts of the firefighters to pinpoint the seat of the fire, which was extinguished shortly before noon.
Crews returned to the property in the early afternoon after smoke was again spotted coming from the shed. No injuries were reported and the cause remains under investigation.
