A Wednesday morning fire destroyed a building at a lumber business near Floodwood.
A building at Lindquist Lumber and Post-Frame Buildings, 5586 Minnesota Highway 73, went up in flames at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to owner Ashley Clark Makela. The building and its contents were a total loss, she said.
The fire appeared to be caused by an electrical issue, Clark Makela said. No damage estimate was immediately available, but business continued as usual Wednesday. The building was just one of five used by the business.
“We’ll be carrying on as we generally do,” Clark Makela said. “It’s unfortunate, but it won’t affect us selling or putting up buildings.”
