Firefighters respond to a report of a structure fire in the Dogwood Canyon area that turns out to be a pile of rags that caught fire.

Southern Stone County Firefighters got the call around 8:00 Wednesday evening and initially send two alarms with heavy smoke showing from the area according to a post from the Fire District’s Facebook Page. Upon arrival, it was discovered that a pile of rags had caught fire outside the building.

The second alarm was cancelled with the first group of firefighters on the scene quickly able to put out the fire and clear the scene in about an hour.
