Night blaze guts north side River Falls business


Flames swept through and engulfed the back shop of St. Croix Sport just off Hwy. 35N. in the town of Troy shortly after 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28. The fire caused hundreds of thousands of dollars damage to snowmobiles, snow blowers, ATVs, chain saws, and commercial lawn-care equipment. Some was inventory being repaired for customers. It took 26 River Falls firefighters, with two engines, a water tender and a ladder truck almost an hour to control the fire.
