UPDATE: LANCASTER— A grass fire that has consumed about 1,500 acres near Lancaster is now 100 percent contained, according to the Lancaster Fire Department.

The above video shows an aerial view of the destruction, northeast of Grand Forks.

The fire quickly spread due to the wind and dry conditions.

Minnesota Incident Command says crews were even called in from Kenora, Ontario to help fight the flames, which crossed over into Canada.

Fire officials have confirmed a cabin is a total loss from the flames, but there were no injuries or loss of livestock.
