Crews Battle Fire at Brooklyn Park Senior Apartments
Multiple fire departments worked to put out a fire on Sunday afternoon at a Brooklyn Park apartment building.
Around 4:12 p.m. crews were called to Waterford In The Park, on the 7000 block of 62nd Avenue. Brooklyn Park police say smoke was seen rising from the building from about a mile away.
Firefighters were able to put out the flames quickly on the building’s second and third floor balconies. Crews stayed on the scene for about 2 more hours conducting salvage and overhaul.
A first responder suffered a minor injury, but no one else was hurt. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Firefighters from West Metro, Plymouth, Brooklyn Center, Maple Grove and Fridley assisted in the effort.
