Frazee hair salon burns Thursday morning

     The fire at a Frazee hair salon Thursday morning is under investigation.

     Fire crews were called to Hair Style Studio on Lake Street, near the intersection of Main Avenue, at about 7:15 a.m.

     There are apartment units on the upper level of the building and the south side of the building. Everyone was evacuated from the building, and there were no injuries.

     “When we responded and came there, the windows were broken out, smoke coming from every window,” Frazee Fire Chief Regi Ueke said.

     “The fire itself was contained to the main floor. Smoke damage went through the whole building,” he added.

     The cause of the fire has not been released. Ueke said it is under investigation.

     Later Thursday morning, Ueke was waiting for the state fire marshal to arrive in Frazee so more could be determined, included an estimated damage and cause.

     “Once we hear from him we can release more information, but not at this time,” he said.

     Detroit Lakes and Vergas fire departments provided mutual aid, and Frazee Rescue was also on the scene.
