DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A historic house on one of Duluth's busiest streets has been damaged by fire.
The red sandstone Traphagen House was built in the early 1890s and is on the National Register of Historic Places. No one was inside the building when the fire broke out about 1 a.m. Monday.
The building currently houses HTK Marketing and Communications. HTK founder Howard Klatzky says there is significant damage to the building. Klatzky says it's been a privilege to work in one of the city's most unique buildings with such a rich history.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1BtO0to ) says the designer of the house, Oliver Traphagen, also had a hand in other distinctive buildings in Duluth, including the former City Hall and Fitger's Brewery
