BARNUM TOWNSHIP — A house was deemed a total loss after a car caught fire inside an attached garage Saturday night.

The blaze was reported on the 3700 block of Hilltop View Road shortly after 8:30 p.m., according to the Carlton County Sheriff's Office.

The Barnum, Blackhoof, Carlton, Mahtowa and Moose Lake fire departments all arrived on the scene and contained the fire, but not before it destroyed the house and garage.

No injuries were reported. The cause was not believed to be suspicious, but remained under investigation by the sheriff's office and state fire marshal.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
