A building in Liberty Township, north of Bemidji, was completely lost to fire yesterday, according to Bemidji Fire Chief Dave Hoefer.
The shop on Spencer Road NW was completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived on the scene after 5 a.m on Sunday morning. They were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire, but the building and its contents were a total loss.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Hoefer says it appears to be accidental in nature. Nobody was injured in the fire.
