Firefighters Battled Fire, Cold To Save Coliseum In 1973

Firefighters Battled Fire, Cold To Save Coliseum In 1973

Sioux Falls firefighters have to respond to emergency calls no matter the temperature.

On Monday morning, Sioux Falls Fire Rescue crews were called to a home near 12th Street and Bahnson Avenue.  Firefighters quickly put out the fire burning over a patio and the deck attached to the house.  Crews remained on scene for several hours, removing smoldering insulation. 

At the end of 1973, crews fought a large fire at the Sioux Falls Coliseum in downtown when it was 12 degrees below zero.

Their efforts, and a thick fire wall, kept the fire from getting to the auditorium in the building.  But the fire did force the cancellation of the Sioux Empire Farm Show that year.

Watch a report on the fire by Jim Burt by clicking on the attached video player.
