Gas Leak Evacuates Fargo Apartment Building

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of disabled tenants were displaced for about an hour Monday afternoon when a gas leak caused some alarm in downtown Fargo at the New Horizons Manor building.

The fire marshal says the heat may have been a factor in starting a fire in the controller box near some propane tanks which then led to a gas leak.

All tenants were evacuated but the heat was a concern for emergency responders. First Responders then called in help as a safety measure.

Fire Marshal Norman Scott told Valley News Live "It's so hot out today we put a call out to other businesses. We tried to get other businesses to take them in, we also put a call out to city buses until we got the situation under control."

The tenants were able to return home this Monday afternoon with no damage done to the building.
