Explosion Reported

Sunday evening Battalion 1, along with CAFD Stations 1 and 3, responded to a report of an explosion and black smoke in the area of Avenue B and 14th Street in Cloquet.

Upon arrival, Battalion 1 found approximately one acre of woods burning near a high voltage power line. The cause of the fire is unknown but it is believed to be related to the several hour power outage in Cloquet.

The CAFD was assisted by the MN DNR.
