Fire On Highway 169 03 Oct 12

A fire along Highway 169 between St. Peter and Mankato Tuesday night led to traffic delays while firefighters extinguished the blaze. Several area fire departments had responded to a car fire on Highway 169, about 2 miles north of Highway 14, when the fire from the car spread to a nearby wetland. That fire was quickly put out, although southbound traffic on 169 was briefly halted as firefighters doused the blaze. No injuries were reported.
