The Crookston Fire Department had three calls on Friday.
At about 9:00 in the morning, they responded to a general fire alarm in the shared space between RiverView and Altru. The alarm was accidentally triggered during maintenance work.
At about noon, they were called to provide mutual aid for a wildland fire in Kurtsonville Township. They assisted the Mentor Fire Department, Minnesota DNR, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to extinguish a fire apparently caused by a passing train.
At 5:00 p.m., they responded to an alarm at Oak Court, caused by a resident’s burned popcorn. They ventilated and cleared the scene.
