Spring Grove, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Minnesota Department of Transportation says a detour has been put in place to direct traffic off Highway 44 in Spring Grove because of a structure fire.

Highway 44 is Main Street in Spring Grove and MnDOT spokesman Mike Dougherty says the highway closure was ordered for safety reasons and to allow firefighters enough space to work. Reports indicate a building housing a business and some apartments in downtown Spring Grove caught fire this afternoon in the bitter cold. Information about the severity of the fire is not yet available.

The detour is expected to remain in effect overnight.

The Houston County town is home to about 1300 residents and is located about 50 miles southeast of Rochester.
