A man has died from injuries sustained during a garage fire on Tuesday in northern Minnesota. 

The Becker County Sheriff’s Office said crews responded to a fire just after 5 p.m. on the 2500 block of Brandy Lake Road in Detroit Township, located just outside of Detroit Lakes. 

At the scene, crews found a garage fully engulfed in flames and learned a neighbor and family members had pulled a man out of the burning structure before they arrived. 

The sheriff’s office said the man was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries. However, he died at the hospital. 

Authorities are not releasing the man’s name until family members have been notified. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
