Authorities believe a house caught fire in Brevator Township after a resident of the home attempted to thaw frozen pipes - a result of the recent subzero temperatures.

St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, Fond du Lac Police, and eight fire departments responded to the blaze that broke out on the 8100 block of Highway 2. The fire started around 4:00 p.m. Monday.

When squads arrived, the home was fully engulfed. Authorities say that Highway 2 had to be shut down several times to bring more water to the scene.

The house is considered a total loss. There we no injuries.
