Fire investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that burned down a cabin northeast Minnesota early Monday morning.
The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department issued a release saying a fire at 3315 North Alden Lake Road in North Star Township was reported around 5 a.m., and on arrival the cabin was fully engulfed in flames.
Described as a 42-foot by 24-foot cabin, the structure was a total loss with an estimated value of $240,000.
Fortunately, nobody was inside the cabin at the time of the fire and the owner, who was out of town, was contacted by deputies.
The State Fire Marshal is investigating.
The location of the fire was on the north side of Alden Lake, about 25 miles north of Duluth.
