Park Rapids firefighters quickly doused a chimney fire at a rural Osage mobile home Tuesday morning with help from Straight Lake.

The home on Washington Drive suffered minimal damage, firefighters said.


They replenished their trucks with water from the nearby lake, using an auger to drill below the thick ice.

Carsonville firefighters arrived on the scene but were sent home when it was clear they were not needed.
