There were no injuries, and a damage report was not issued. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The region is under abnormally dry conditions for this area. Firefighters want to remind residents and visitors to be vigilant. One unintentional spark under these conditions could be all it takes to ignite a grass/wildfire. Keep up to date on burning restriction on the MnDNR site

The Cloquet Area Fire District was assisted by the Cloquet DNR and the Cloquet Police Department.
