East Grand Forks firefighters had some dangerously cold work fighting a garage fire Friday afternoon.

Crew were called out to the 700 block of First Avenue Northeast around 1:15 Friday afternoon. According to East Grand Forks Fire Chief Gary Olson says it appears the fire was ignited by some mechanical work being done inside the investigation, the cold weather wasn't the only challenge for the crew battling the blaze.

East Grand Forks Fire Chief Gary Larson said, "They've got some equipment stored on the top floor of the garage, there was a lot of flammable materials in there so we did not want to put any personnel in there until we could find out what was going on."

The cause of the fire remains under investigation
