The St. Michael Fire Department last weekend responded to a fire at Albertville Meadows apartment complex, caused by a cigarette butt carelessly thrown just outside the building.
One family was temporarily displaced Saturday morning. The fire started outside and got between the walls of the units; firefighters broke through walls to put it out. The fire produced black smoke, but no flames.
St. Michael Fire Department assisted Albertville Fire at the scene. Monticello Fire and Rescue was also at the scene, and Allina Ambulance and Wright County Sheriff's Deputies were on hand.
