Fire broke out in Cabin A on March 12. Thanks to quick action on
the part of guests, an emergency plan, dedicated park staff, local
volunteers, firefighters and rescue workers, the fire was contained
and the cabin saved, according to Tettegouche State Park manager
The fire destroyed about 40 percent of the roof of the cabin.
The repairs cost about $50,000. “Because the cabin is on the
National Register of Historic Places, we needed to match the
materials and design of the original building,” Leversedge said.
The rustic log cabin was once part of an exclusive club for a
group of Duluth businessmen. Tettegouche State Park was established
in 1979. For lodging or camping reservations, call 1-866-85PARKS or
