nullAuthorities are investigating what might have started a fire that destroyed a construction business just south of International Falls Monday night.

According to Bruce Bergstrom, a Firefighter Engineer, firefighters responded to a call at Up North Builders around 8:30. Upon arrival, he said the business was completely engulfed in flames.

Firefighters were on the scene until 1:30 Tuesday morning, but Bergstrom said they have been back twice since the initial fire after it rekindled.

State, county and city authorities are taking part in the investigation, Bergstrom said.
