June 28 – Lake Johanna firefighters battled an intense blaze that burned through several vehicles on a car hauler on Tuesday monring.

Station 1 and 4 crews were called to the scene, on Highway 10, north of Interstate 694 in Arden Hills around 7 a.m.

When he arrived, Chief 1 — Tim Boehlke — found heavy fire showing from the 18-wheel hauler carrying seven vehicles, including cars and pickup trucks.

Ladder 4 arrived and firefighters stretched two hoselines to knock down the bulk of the fire.

Boehlke said crews then used portable ladders to access the vehicles on the second deck of the truck. They doused any hot spots and overhauled the fire.

Engine 4 and Tanker 2 supplied Ladder 4 with water during the firefight and overhaul operations.

The fire started in one of the hauler’s tires and quickly spread to the cargo, Boehlke said. The fire spread to five vehicles.

  • Initial Assignment: Engine 4, Ladder 4, Utility 1, Chief 1. Second Alarm: Engine 2, Tanker 2, Utility 2, Station 3 for standby.
