Thursday morning fire crews were called for a roof fire at the J.R. Simplot Company in Grand Forks.

When crews arrived on scene, they found the fire in a piece of equipment. While crews were working to put the fire out, an explosion happened and eventually spread the fire to other equipment.

One firefighter was taken to Altru with non-life threatening injuries. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
