HOLLANDALE, MN — It has been one day since a fire destroyed some southern Minnesota warehouses and there is still a lot of work to be done.

Monday a blaze started at two storage sheds in Hollandale. 911 was called around 11:30 a.m. and crews from more than a dozen fire departments worked to put out the blaze.

The building owners are just grateful for all the help and that no one was hurt.

“I can’t express in words how heartwarming. A lot of friends, a lot of people, I had a lot of friends there trying to help. My son had the big machines going trying to move all of our cars and stuff around, we have a lot of old antiques,” said Irene Jones, who owns the buildings with her husband.

There were 15 classic cars that were destroyed, including two Model Ts. That is in addition to all the antiques that Jones has been collecting over the past 40 years.
