A fire destroyed the gas station at the intersection of US-141 and M-28 at Covington, a key focal point of the area. The fire was reported around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 13, to the
building that also served as a store and office. Firefighters were credited with preventing the flames from spreading to the pumps and underground tanks. “Everything on the Covington fire is preliminary at this point,” Baraga County sheriff Joseph Brogan said. “I’ll know more after the State Fire Marshal Division processes the scene.” To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
