Minor fire extinguished by tenants of Duluth home

Four tenants in a rental home on the 1200 block of Brainerd Avenue in Duluth avoided injury during a small fire in a bathroom Wednesday evening.

The Duluth Fire Department responded to the fire with six units, but the tenants had already contained the fire using an extinguisher.

“We didn’t have to use the hoses because they did all the right things,” said Assistant Duluth Fire Chief Chris Martinson. “They used an extinguisher and called 911.”

The fire was reported at about 6:30 p.m. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
