MAHNOMEN, Minn.—It took around 50 firefighters over three hours to contain the massive flames at an old sewing factory in Mahnomen. The fire engulfed two buildings off of Highway 200. The Sheriff's office says both structures have been vacant for 10 years and no electricity was running to either building. The factory is now considered a total loss. Five departments responded, including: Mahnomen, Waubun, Twin Lakes, Fosston and Bagley. The State Fire Marshal's office is investigating the cause.

A Type-2 Incident Management Team is being put into place, which is the second highest level activated during disaster situations.
