The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says that at approximately 2:28 a.m. sheriff's deputies along with several fire departments responded to 9555 Hemenway Road in Forbes, Minnesota, on a report of a house that was full of smoke.

Shortly after first responders arrived on scene they saw flames coming from inside of the home. The lone occupant of the home was able to evacuate and was not injured.

Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire, and at this time the extent of damage is not known. A McDavitt fire department official tells the Northland FireWire one corner of the house had damage and the entire home had smoke damage. 

Fire departments who assisted with the fire include McDavitt Fire Department, Cherry Fire Department, Clinton Fire Department, Toivola Fire Department, and Hibbing Fire Department.
