The fire at 1726 11th Ave. N. was reported at 7:50 p.m., and fire crews reported it was partially extinguished by the homeowner when they arrived. Firefighters completed extinguishing the fire, which was caused by improper installation of a vent pipe from a wood-burning stove.

The Fire Department reminds people to maintain all heating appliances, keep garages clear of clutter and store all flammables in a safe location.
