Litchfield Auto Salvage Fire 16 Oct 17

Fire has destroyed an auto salvage yard in Litchfield.

At just after 6:30pm Sunday, the Meeker County Sheriff’s office responded to R & R Auto Salvage on Highway 12, just east of Litchfield, for a report of an alarm.

When the deputy arrived there was smoke coming from the shop of the business and the Litchfield Fire Department was called. A short while later, the building became fully engulfed in flames.

The Litchfield Fire Department, Grove City Fire Department, and Dassel Fire Department all responded.

Authorities say the building, along with the contents, was a total loss.

At 12:44 this morning (Monday) the fire rekindled. The Litchfield Fire Department responded and was assisted by the Eden Valley, Grove City, and Dassel Fire Departments to put out the fire.

No one was injured as a result of the fire.

The cause is unknown and remains under investigation.
