The gas station located at the intersection of Highway 59 and 200 is now back open.
A release from the Sheriff's office says someone came into the store just before 12:30 p.m. Monday, and paid for an item with cash.
After the employee handled the cash, they believe a substance on the bill burned the cashier's hand.
A paramedic on scene says the substance was a white power, but the sheriff's office won't know exactly what is was until it's tested.
The Mahnomen County Sheriff's office, White Earth Police Department, Mahnomen Fire Department, Mahnomen/White Earth Emergency Management and the Moorhead HAZMAT team responded to the incident.
