Baxter family considered lucky after fire

Email

The Baxter family that discovered a fire in their master bedroom Sunday night are considered lucky.

Brainerd Fire Chief Kevin Stunek said Monday if the fire at the home rented by Paul and Tracy Bartholomaus would have been in the middle of the night or if their fire alarms were not working properly, the outcome could have been deadlier as the couple and three of their four children, ages 3 to 16, were at home during the incident.
