The Polk County Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of two fires in Climax and McIntosh, Minn.

Authorities responded early Wednesday to fires at a single-family home in Climax and a mobile home in McIntosh. No injuries were reported in the Climax fire, although Crookston Area Ambulance transported all four occupants to the RiverView Health Emergency Room for non-life-threatening smoke inhalation, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

A cat also died in the fire, the Sheriff's Office said.

The mobile home's sole occupant escaped with non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Essentia Hospital in Fosston, Minn.

Minnesota's State Fire Marshal has been notified of both fires, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
