During late night police patrols, officers often encounter dumpster fires, but not always literal ones.

During a routine patrol overnight Saturday, Eden Prairie police encountered a dumpster fire in the industrial area of the city.

According to a Facebook post from the city of Eden Prairie, the on-duty crews put the fire out.

Authorities have not determined the cause of the dumpster fire at this time.

Eden Prairie Fire Chief George Esbensen captured part of the part in a photo.
