Authorities arrived and found the body of 46-year-old Stanley Skare of Saginaw. Skare's dog also was found dead inside the cabin.

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Church halls across Minnesota are keeping alive a dying culinary tradition by hosting lutefisk dinners. The Scandinavian dish was created as a way to preserve fish before refrigeration existed. The population of lutefisk aficionados is aging. Chris Dorff is president of the Olsen Fish Company in Minneapolis, the only high-volume producer of lutefisk in the U.S. He tells Minnesota Public Radio News that sales have been dropping consistently since 1995.
