Fairyland Cottages destroyed in controlled fire Tuesday
Fairyland Cottages was reduced to a heap of ash Tuesday evening, as the main building of the former resort burned in a controlled fire.
The fire was staged at 410 W. Lake Drive as part of a training exercise by the Detroit Lakes Fire Department. Fire Chief Jeff Swanson said it was a great opportunity for his crew to receive hands-on training.
"There was a fire in it a couple of years ago and it needed to be torn down," Swanson said.
