By the time the Fosston Fire Department responded nearly 20 minutes later, the entire structure was engulfed in flames.

A woman inside the trailer was hurt. Her stepfather tells us she was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center where she is in Critical Condition for second and third degree burns.

Neighbors say they feared that the fire would spread to the surrounding homes.

Gloria Winkler, a neighbor, says: “It was so bad we couldn't see to the street, there was debris from the trailer house blowing on our house and we were really concerned about our house catching on fire, and if that would have been the case we would have left at the time. The smoke was so bad we couldn't get to a vehicle.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
