The St. Louis County Sheriff's office says multiple fire departments responded to the blaze in the 3800 block of Brookston road around 3:30 p.m.

The sheriff's office says the homeowner was reportedly cleaning his chimney at the time the fire started. It quickly spread throughout the house, which appears to be a total loss. No injuries were reported.

The Fond Du Lac Police Department and the State Fire Marshal's Office are investigating.
