First responders were called to the street department Thursday afternoon on reports on a structure fire.

An officer with the Madelia Police Department arrived at the scene within a minute of the call and the building was already completely engulfed in flames.

The Saint James Fire Department was called for mutual aid assistance. The fire was brought under control by 5 p.m. and all personnel had cleared the scene by 9. There were no reported injuries as a result of this incident.

Preliminary findings by Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division investigators and local authorities indicate that the cause of the fire was likely accidental. The fire remains under investigation. The investigation and final determination of the cause of the fire will be handled by the fire marshal.
