A pallet of old batteries was the source of a warehouse fire at 900 Apollo Road on Sunday evening, according to Eagan Fire Chief Mike Scott.

Firefighters responded to a water flow alarm at the warehouse just after 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to a news release from Scott. Crews discovered a fire in the warehouse and requested a second alarm, which brought a total of three fire stations to the call.

Working with warehouse employees, firefighters were able to use forklifts to gain access to the fire, and then quickly extinguished the blaze, Scott said. Fire investigators are looking into the cause of the fire, Scott said. There were no injuries.

The Apollo Road fire was the second fire involving an Eagan business in two days. On Saturday morning, Eagan firefighters responded to a fire at Gopher Resources in Eagan.

On Jan. 19, crews also battled a blaze at a townhome complex on Aspen Drive in Eagan. That fire claimed the life of a 33-year-old Eagan resident, who was unable to escape from the second story of the building.
