CLOQUET, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say a body was found after a house fire near Cloquet in northeastern Minnesota.

Fire departments from several communities responded Thursday night to a report of a house engulfed in flames. Crews spent hours putting out the fire, but the house and attached garage were destroyed.

Deputies from the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office found human remains at the scene at about noon Friday.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

There was also a deadly fire in the Duluth area this week. Human remains believed to be those of an elderly woman were found in a burned out home in Hermantown.
