Heating Device Caused Structure Fire At Federal Reserve Building

29December 2021

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A small heating device used to thaw a door was the cause of a structure fire at the Federal Reserve Bank Wednesday.

The Minneapolis Fire Department says crews responded to a structure fire at 90 Hennepin Ave. S. around 10:30 a.m.

Crews checked all floors to find the cause of the fire and found that an employee used a heating device to try to thaw a metal door that was frozen shut, according to the release.

Crews say the heat from the torch started a small fire in the foam installation that was between the walls near the metal door.

There was no major structural damage to the building.
