Fire at Monticello Garden Center


(KSTP/Monticello, MN) A fire engulfed a garden center in Monticello on Thursday.

KSTP reports smoke and flames were seen coming from Dan & Jerry’s Garden Center shortly before noon.

Crews were able to put the fire out fairly quickly, but enough damage was still done.

The company told KSTP two-and-a-half greenhouses were lost in the fire and thousands of plants were destroyed.

The plants would’ve been distributed to area stores, such as Fleet Farm and Runnings as the busy season for nurseries and garden centers is just beginning.

The cause is still under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
