Fire causes major damage to Detroit Lakes RV dealer

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (KVRR/KFGO) – Damage is estimated at over one million dollars after a fire at Wold’s RV Sales on Highway 10 in Detroit Lakes.

Fire Chief Ryan Swanson says smoke was pouring out the east side of the building when the fire was reported around 10:00 Tuesday night. He says Detroit Lakes firefighters with mutual aid from Audubon and Frazee fire departments made entry to the building and working in shifts were able to get the fire under control.

There is major damage to the showroom and parts department.

A state fire investigator was called in to look for the cause of the fire.

“It was almost an hour of changing out crews and fighting this fire as it moved up from the one level up to the second level,” Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Ryan Swanson.

Swanson says one firefighter received a back injury from pulling hoses through deep snow.
