Google Maps

Multiple blazes in West Duluth kept fire crews busy through the early morning hours of today (May 22). The fires were in the area of 65th and 66th Avenue West, all within a few blocks of each other.

The first fire call came in around 2:00 am, with responders arriving on the scene to discover an RV fully engulfed in flames at 115 South 65th Avenue West. As firefighters finished putting out the first fire around 3:00 am, a second fire involving a pickup truck was reported nearby at 65th Avenue West and Polk Street.

Just minutes after a team responded to the pickup fire, Duluth Police responded to a structure fire alarm near 19 North 66th Avenue West. This garage fire wreaked the most damage of the three blazes, destroying a garage and two vehicles parked near the structure. Along with the property damage, power lines in the area of the garage were burned, knocking out power for residents in the area.

Early estimates from city investigators place a $31,000 price tag on the damage done by this morning’s fires.

Duluth fire investigators along with Duluth Police and the St. Louis County Sheriff’s officers are examining the scenes and looking to locate any suspects. Your help is encouraged if you have any information that would help in the investigation.
