A person has been found dead in the rubble of a business that burned down in Maple Grove Tuesday night, according to reports. 

The fire started at Hanson Implement and Storage off Bass Lake Road and Highway 101 around 6:10 p.m. Tuesday. 

Initial reports said three people were still inside the building. When firefighters arrived, two people had gotten out – one was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries and the other was treated at the scene, according to reports.

One person remained missing Wednesday morning, the Maple Grove Fire Department said. They have since been found dead.

The medical examiner will formally identify the person who died in the fire. FOX 9 is reporting the victim is the sister-in-law of the business owner who lived at the business and helped take care of it. 

The building, which offers indoor and outdoor storage as well as sells lawn and snow equipment and does repairs, is said to be a complete loss. 

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
