BEMIDJI-A fire in Grant Valley Township Friday afternoon totalled an SUV and damaged a home.

The Bemidji Fire Department responded to a fire at 1:57 p.m. on the 4200 block of Deer Haven Court Southwest where firefighters found an Oldsmobile Bravada fully engulfed. The vehicle was located five feet from a garage and caused damage to the exterior of the home and roof, according to a release from the Bemidji Fire Department.

Seven firefighters used one fire engine, one tender and one support vehicle to battle the blaze which lasted approximately 1.5 hours. Heavy winds and cold temperatures made efforts difficult, the release said. No injuries were reported.

The fire caused an estimated $2,000 in damage to the vehicle and building. The cause of the investigation is under investigation, however appears to be caused by a mechanical issue with the SUV. Beltrami County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.
