Fire ravages Backus firefighter's home
A fire on Friday heavily damaged the home of a Backus firefighter, Backus Fire Chief Karl Flier said.
The fire was reported about 1:40 p.m. on the 500 block of 43rd Avenue Northwest in Backus, Flier said, and when firefighters arrived the roof and second floor were already gone. Firefighters were able to save an attached garage, Flier said.
"It was pretty torched," Flier said of the house. Both Pine River and Hackensack fire departments assisted with the fire.
