PHOTOS: Flames from a warehouse engulfed in fire in the North End district could be seen throughout the city early Thursday morning. Firefighters battled the fire in brutal conditions. As of 8:45 a.m., the temperature was 10 degrees below zero, with wind chill at 22 degrees below zero, according to the National Weather Service in Duluth. The Blatnik Bridge to and from Superior was closed due to the affect of smoke on motorists' visibility, but reopened shortly before 9 a.m., according to a news release from the Superior Police Department. The police department advised the public that road closures may change. The roof is gone and the walls began to collapse on the four-story brick building, located at 1507 N. First St. The warehouse is listed for sale on the Follmer Commercial Real Estate website for $795,000.
