Fire destroys SUV, nobody injured

The Maple Lake Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire east of Maple Lake, Monday, Jan. 8, that spread to a nearby, detached garage. Nobody was hurt in the blaze, according to MLFD Chief Steve Peterson. The fire happened around 3 p.m. at a residence off Highway 55 just east of Cushing Ave. Officials believe a battery charger connected to the Dodge Durango was the source. The fire spread to the garage’s siding, but was put out before it could cause a lot of damage. The vehicle, however, was a total loss, Peterson said. MLFD responded to the call with four emergency vehicles and 13 people. Wright County deputies were also on scene. (Photo by Nick Pawlenty)
