Minnesota Gun Range Catches Fire

Patrons escaped a three-alarm fire at a gun range in Burnsville on July 31. 

The fire at the Burnsville Rifle and Pistol Range was reported around 8 p.m. and was under control in about an hour.

Firefighters began with an offensive attack and were forced to retreat due to intense heat and limited ventilation opportunities. They moved back into the structure and knocked down the fire.

Units from several departments remained on scene for hours conducting overhaul
