Car under recall may be to blame for garage fire near Elgin

Posted:

ELGIN, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office reports a car under recall may be to blame for a fire that destroyed a garage near Elgin last Friday.

Firefighters from Elgin and Plainview battled the fire in a detached garage in the 6700 block of 80th Avenue.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that a BMW in the garage was under a recall. The car battery is located in the trunk, and a faulty battery cable connection has caused fires in the past.

No one was home at the time the fire broke out.
