Lake cabin burns

GREENWOOD TWP— One man was airlifted to the Miller Dwan burn unit in Duluth on Saturday, June 6, after he was injured in an early morning cabin fire on Lake Vermilion.
The man was one of six people reportedly inside the two-story cabin, located on Nelson Road, when it caught fire. The man initially escaped the blaze without injury but went back into the burning building thinking another member of his party was still inside. He suffered burns and other injuries in the rescue attempt, none of which were considered to be life-threatening.
The other five members of the party were uninjured in the incident. The log-sided cabin, perched on a rock bluff overlooking the lake, was completely destroyed.
The fire was reported around 7:48 a.m. and county dispatchers alerted the Greenwood, Tower, and Breitung fire departments, all of which responded along with the Tower and Virginia Ambulance and the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Department. The cabin was mostly collapsed by the time fire crews were able to arrive. St. Louis County records show the property is owned by Timothy Latterner, of Wayzata.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
