The cause of the fire is believed to have originated in the kitch, according to Perham Fire Chief Mark Schmidt. The Sheriff's Office stated that a dog could also somehow have been involved in starting the fire, but did not specify its role.

Perham Fire Department, along with New York Mills and Vergas fire departments were paged to the fire.
