MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Overnight, firefighters from several communities helped put out a fire in Deephaven. A fire alarm alerted them to the burning home on Lakeview Drive.
No one was in the home at the time.
Firefighters had difficulty getting to the flames because they had worked their way into the attic.
Another challenge was a lack of fire hydrants in this part of Deephaven. Firefighters had to haul water in and put it in a pool.
“That was certainly a logistical difficulty for a period of time, but because we drill on that and we work with our neighbors to be able to do that — that actually went fairly well. We’ve been able to keep the water in that pool full and never be able to run out of water,” said Chief Scott Gerber of the Excelsior Fire Department.
None of the firefighters was hurt putting that fire out.
It’s not known yet what started it.
