Steam not smoke,

found on scene

The Brainerd Fire Department was called at 12:04 p.m. Wednesday to two neighboring houses on the 200 block of North Ninth Street that burned and sustained heavy damages on March 14. The initial call reported that smoke was coming out of the houses. Firefighters arrived, investigated and found that it was not smoke, but it was steam.

Firefighters responded to a call at 5:24 p.m. Tuesday to a small gas spill at the gas station at SAVE Foods, 701 Industrial Park Road SW.
