BEMIDJI—The owner of a home in Eckles Township escaped with his life after fire engulfed his house Friday evening. Bemidji Firefighters responded to a house fire at 8:56 p.m. Friday in the 11000 block of state Highway 89, according to a release from the department. The owner of the house told fire officials he heard his smoke detectors go off, and then saw someone pounding on the door to alert him of the fire once he got outside, a fire department employee told the Pioneer on Saturday.
