On Sunday at approximately 7:30 p.m., Wannaska forester Shane Delaney, the Assistant Supervisor for the Warroad Area Forestry District, received a call that there was a fire up in Juneberry Township about 15 miles northwest of Greenbush.

It would turn out to be a long night for those responding to the fire.

"Shawn (Olsen) was the guy in charge the first evening and all through the night," said Delaney, adding that the fire is under investigation.

"The initial assumption is that it could be arson," he said on Tuesday afternoon. "The fire is pretty much 100 percent contained right now."
