SCHROEDER, Minn. (AP) — The death of a longtime Minnesota Power worker is under investigation in northeastern Minnesota.

The utility says the death of 47-year-old Kyle Damberg is a "tragic work site accident." But, further details weren't released.

Damberg was found unresponsive Friday at a maintenance building under construction in Schroeder. The company says Damberg was checking on the structure being built near the Taconite Harbor Energy Center.

Damberg worked for Minnesota Power for 23 years as a designer in its engineering services department.

The Duluth News Tribune says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate.
