The Star Tribune reported the fire that broke out in north-central Minnesota has now been contained.
The fire burned 1,600 acres near the town of Nimrod, Minn. Investigators said they think the fire was started by a vehicle.
No injuries have been reported, but the blaze did burn a fire and cause near by residencies to evacuate.
HometownSource.com reported the Minnesota National Guard went to Nimrod on the orders of Gov. Mark Dayton.
Spokesperson for the Minnesota National Guard said a tough-to-stop fire was expected because of the lack of precipitation over the last year.
