A fire broke out, causing damage to multiple vendor booths inside the Minnesota Renaissance Festival Friday morning. Fox 9 says witnesses first reported seeing flames while driving on Hwy. 169.
The blaze started in the Rogue’s Chicken booth shortly after 6 a.m., according to the Star Tribune. The flames destroyed the chicken shack and damaged other vendors nearby before firefighters could extinguish it. No one was hurt.
Six area fire departments were called to help, according to Minnesota Public Radio. Making matters worse, the festival site lacks access to water or fire hydrants. Kare 11 reports tanker crews from Shakopee, Chaska, and Carver and Scott Counties were on the scene helping with the blaze.
KSTP has a slideshow chronicling the fire's damage.
