Fire department
responds to two calls

A report of injuries turned out to be worse in description than fact as one vehicle slid into a ditch where Business Highway 371 and Highway 371 meet at the bypass Friday.

The crash was reported at 2:14 p.m. and the Brainerd Fire Department was canceled before reaching the crash site.

Firefighters were also called to a possible gas leak at 2:46 p.m. Saturday on the 1000 block of 11th Street Southeast. Residents in a home heard a hissing sound and thought there was a gas leak, but the hissing turned out to be coming from the radiator and the home’s hot water heat.
