Richfield Logan Ave Fire - 9/2/2012
A house fire near 75th and Logan (1 block from Best Buy Corporate Office). There were too many sirens so I grabbed my camera, hopped on my bike, and went to see what I could find out.
According to Richfield Fire Chief Wayne Kewitsch the initial call came in at 2:56pm on Sunday with possibly 3 people trapped. RFD encountered heavy fire upon arrival and called for 3 alarms. One firefighter was being evaluated by EMTs. One pet died while one other was able to be resuscitated via CPR by firefighters and was also administered an i.v. using training from an organization called BART (basicanimalrescuetraining.org). Authorities are investigating reports of an explosion from the garage of one of the houses involved.
Departments involved included Richfield Fire, Minneapolis Fire, Bloomington Fire, MSP Airport Fire, Edina Fire, St. Louis Park Fire, Eden Prairie Fire, and HCMC EMTs.
