Snow blower and fire truck issues

The Brainerd Fire Department responded to two calls reported at the same time at 3:15 p.m. Friday.

One call was on Bonnie Road near Merrifield, of a man who got his hand stuck in a snow blower. Firefighters were canceled en route.

The other call was to provide standby assistance at the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport. The airport’s Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting truck was having issues with the door closing. Firefighters stood by as an airplane landed. They cleared the scene at 4:30 p.m.
