Firefighters Extinguish Lake Elmo Garage Fire

Firefighters extinguished a fire in the 5800 block of Lake Elmo Avenue Wednesday morning, just before noon.

The call came in as a car fire in an attached garage, Lake Elmo Fire Chief Greg Malmquist said. When firefighters arrived on the scene the garage was fully engulfed in flames.

Everyone was able to get out of the home, the fire chief said. There were no injuries.

Lake Elmo firefighters had mutual aid from the Mahtomedi, Stillwater, Oakdale, Bayport and Woodbury fire departments, as well as Lakeview EMS and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Firefighters did an excellent job extinguishing the fire, Malmquist said.

The dollar amount of the damage is not yet known, he said, but the fire was contained to the garage with some smoke and water damage in the home.
