Fire destroys Atwater businesses; community in shock
ATWATER -- An early Monday morning fire that gutted three buildings and destroyed four businesses in Atwater's main business district has left the small Kandiyohi County town in shock.
Nearly three-quarters of a block on Atlantic Avenue was wiped out in a ferocious blaze that could be seen for miles. Crews from nine fire departments battled the fast-burning fire in subzero temperatures.
There were no injuries, but firefighters did have to wrestle with frozen lines.
