Bemidji residents spend Fourth of July cleaning up storm damage

Email

BEMIDJI - Barbecues and fireworks weren't on the minds of some Bemidji residents Wednesday.

Rather than celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, some homeowners were still working to clean up from Monday night's storm.

Steve Carpenter said he mostly had downed trees but his roof also was missing shingles.

"I started cleaning up the night it happened," Carpenter said. "I started by helping clear the road."
