BRECKENRIDGE, MINN. (KFGO-AM) -- An early morning fire has destroyed a triple-stall garage which contained tens of thousands of dollars worth of tools, recreational equipment and other property about two miles east of Breckenridge.
Marvin Pearson says he awoke to the blaze shortly after midnight Monday. Pearson says he lost five snowmobiles, a boat, a camper, an ATV, a skid steer loader, two lawnmowers, tools and woodworking equipment.
The garage was detached, but the heat melted the vinyl siding on the house. Pearson says he is insured. Breckenridge Fire Chief Brian Conzemius says he doesn't know what started the fire, but he doesn't believe its suspicious.
