MAY 19 – Ramsey Fire crews, along with Anoka County Auto Aid, were dispatched to the 15000 Block of Willemite Street at around 2:20 p.m. today.

First arriving units reported smoke showing and deployed pre-connected handlines to the structure,  quickly knocking down the fire.

A drop tank was set up as this area has no hydrants; however, due to the quick knockdown of the fire, water shuttles were not needed.

The Auto Aid brought fire crews from Andover, Oak Grove and Anoka-Champlin to the scene.
