The city plans to raze the split-level on Park Avenue.
Follow us on Twitter | Like us on Facebook | Sign up for our daily newsletter At first glance, 14109 Park Avenue appears to be like any other house on the quiet suburban street. A casual passerby would think nothing of the freshly mowed lawn and unremarkable gray facade, but city officials say the house is a hazard to public health. Though damages are not visible from the street, the house has been uninhabitable since fire destroyed portions of the roof and interior on July 29, 2010. An large, charred-black hole in the back corner of the house has been parrtially covered over with plywood and a tarp, leaving the home open to the elements and animal infestation. Inspectors also found mold growing rampant in the lower reaches of the split …

After recovering from a disastrous fire, on Sunday the restaurant will host a fundraiser for the men and women of the Eagan Fire Department who came to their aid.
After months of rebuilding following a disastrous fire, Casper’s Cherokee of Eagan will reopen its doors this Sunday to host a fundraiser for the Eagan Fire Department.

The restaurant is in the midst of renovations, and plans to reopen with a new menu and look in early May.

The Eagan Fire Department was dispatched shortly before 6 a.m. on Oct. 9, after receiving a report that the restaurant’s two-story deck was on fire.
