Fire calls: Smoke turns out to be burnt chicken


Smoke turns out to be burned chicken

The Brainerd Fire Department responded to a call at 5:32 p.m. Sunday of smoke coming from an apartment on the 500 block of D Street in northeast Brainerd. While it sounded from the initial call that there may have been a resident in trouble, the smoke was from a burned chicken.

Earlier in the day, firefighters responded to an alarm at 2:09 p.m. on the 9200 block of Lone Pine as a steamy shower set off a smoke alarm.
