It was another bone-chilling -22 degree night for fighting a structure fire. We were paged out at 02:36 for a “fully involved structure fire” in Morrison County. Upon arrival, we found flames coming from the roof. Our crews were able to get in quickly and snuff out the flames, but the fire had extension throughout the attic. We were on scene doing overhaul until 0700. The single occupant (and her kitty) got out without injury. Photo: Pillager Fire and Rescue Facebook page.
