A storage shed went up in flames behind a Cenex gas station in St. Martin on Thursday.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says their Office Communication Center was notified of a building on fire behind the gas station just before 4:30 a.m. Deputies arrived to find a storage shed in flames on the north side of the co-op property.

St. Martin Fire and Rescue, the Lake Henry Fire Department, and the Albany Fire Department helped to extinguish the flames. This effort prevented several nearby fuel tanks from exploding.

The building was completely lost. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and is under investigation.

St. Cloud Man Named Person Of Interest In Burglary

A person of interest has been named in the string of burglaries that have taken place in St. Cloud.

The St. Cloud Police Department says officers helped the Department of Corrections arrest 39-year-old Martin David Hutchins of St. Cloud for a parole violation in the 600 block of 9th Avenue South.

Hutchins lived close to the original burglary that took place at the 700 block of 7th Avenue South and has committed similar crimes in the past, making him a person of interest. He also matches the physical description of the perpetrator described by the victim.

Evidence taken from the crime scene has been linked to Hutchins.

On October 18, police were called to 7th Avenue South after a female caller reported an unknown naked man in her bedroom. She did not know how the man had entered her home, and the suspect fled after she called 911. 

Hutchins is also a person of interest in a similar burglary that took place on 7th Avenue South on October 29. He is still in custody at Hennepin County Jail for parole violations.

Both cases remain open and are still under investigation. The St. Cloud Police Department is reminding everyone to leave your windows and doors locked, especially overnight or when you're away from home.

A satellite is being launched into space in Florida, thanks to a retired St. Cloud State physicist and former students.

The MIGHTI is one of four instruments on the Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON), which attempted from Florida just after 2 a.m on Thursday. However, the launch was cancelled the day before due to rocket problems. The next available launch is Friday, November 8.

The ICON will study its namesake, the ionosphere, where space weather and planetary weather meet.

Harlander will be watching the launch from St. Cloud. He hopes to travel to the Mission Operations Center at the University of California-Berkeley to make sure the MIGHTI is powered and working. 

The launch comes after three previous cancellations: one in December 2017, one in June 2018, and another on Wednesday.
