Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- 22 firefighters responded to a blaze at a Duluth business at 211 East 2nd Street around 4:30 Wednesday morning.

The building houses the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indian Outreach Center, a microbrewery operation called Dubrue and Johnson's Auto Repair.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to the auto body shop area but the other businesses suffered some smoke and water damage. Gas powered saws were used to breach garage doors and provide access to fight the fire.

Crews also had to cut a hole in the back wall of the garage for ventilation. The Duluth Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the blaze. Damage is estimated to be more than $150,000.
