Fire damages Glyndon mechanical shop
GLYNDON, Minn. -- Fire damaged an unoccupied mechanical shop in Glyndon on Friday morning but the building was saved, a fire official said.
The blaze at the privately-owned shop on Highway 10 was reported about 10:50 a.m.
The Glyndon Fire Department requested assistance from a number of other departments, including firefighters from Dilworth and Sabin, according to Kurt Kennedy, assistant Dilworth fire chief.
Kennedy said the blaze was brought under control quickly.
"It burned through the roof but the building, I would say, was saved," Kennedy said.
He said the cause of the fire may have been an oil-burning furnace in the attic of the building.
Kennedy said he did not have a dollar estimate on the damage.
