A small electrical fire brought legions of emergency personnel to the Holiday Station store around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

"It was just a small fire," an employee said. "They all came out here," he said of the platoon of deputies, police, ambulance personnel and firefighters that converged on the store on Highway 34 in Park Rapids.

"There was nobody injured."

But the incident prompted numerous calls and inquiries to the Enter-prise, as the show of force attracted a crowd."Oh yeah, we had quite the crew up here," the clerk said. "It really wasn't that big of a deal," he said laughing.

It is believed a malfunctioning coffee machine or pot started the fire.
