Firefighters called to Timber Creek


Crews from the Pequot Lakes, Ideal Township and Pine River fire departments quickly extinguished a fire before noon Thursday at Timber Creek rustic furniture in Jenkins.

From the outside, fire crews focused on a smokestack coming out of the roof on the north end of the building. They removed the pipe and opened a hole in a gable to spray water and advance a hose line to the inside, where interior attack crews were already actively working.

The Backus Fire Department was also called for mutual aid to provide backup in Pine River in case of additional fire calls.

Pequot Lakes firefighters were paged just after 10 a.m., and Ideal was called to provide its ladder truck.
