Fire Department


Duluth Fire Fighters published a book outlining the history of the Duluth Fire Department. While the book, "Fire and Ice", is no longer in publication, it can be viewed at the Duluth Public Library or at Headquarters Fire Station. The book is the first comprehensive look at the history of Duluth Fire Department from its inception to current day. It documents past apparatus, changes in the department, staff, and major fires.
