Garage fire being investigated

The Brainerd Fire Department is investigating a garage fire that occurred at 12:19 a.m. Thursday on the 1300 block of Oak Street.

Firefighters were called to the residence twice during the overnight. The first call was at 8:42 p.m. for a call of a snowmobile on fire. The snowmobile was taken out of the garage and then extinguished. After midnight, firefighters were called to the home again for the garage on fire.

Firefighters also responded to two other general fire alarms. They were called at 1:19 p.m. Wednesday to check on the carbon monoxide levels on the 700 block of Oak Street. Some carbon monoxide was found. At 1:24 p.m. Thursday, firefighters were called to Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd, to what turned out to be a false alarm.
