The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says crews were dispatched around 5:15 a.m. to a house on fire.

The sole occupant of the house, located on the 5400 block of Dunaiski Road, was sleeping at the time and was woken up by a smoke detector. The occupant was able to get out safely and was not injured.

Authorities say it appears the fire started in the chimney and spread to the rest of the house. The sheriff's office wants to remind people to check their smoke detectors to ensure they are working properly.

Fire crews from Canosia Township, Hermantown and Grand Lake responded to the fire.
