Fire Damages Storage Building in Rural Cass County

Posted: Updated:

Fire damaged a storage building Thursday morning in rural Cass County. The large storage shed is on a farmstead at 17381 54th Street SE in Horace, North Dakota which is located just off on Interstate-29.

The owner of the building was inside at the time of the fire, but able to get out unharmed. Organic farm chemicals and several vehicles were being kept inside, but crews and family members were able to safely remove some of the vehicles.

Officials say they were originally worried about the chemicals inside the shed, but tell Valley News Team's John Trierweiler that there is no increased threat from those materials and the smoke coming from the fire is not chemically toxic.

Several rural fire departments helped put the fire out. Heavy smoke continued to billow for quite some time as insulation burned.  We are told this is a fairly new building, it is fully finished inside and was completed about a year ago.

As of noon, no injuries have been reported. The state fire Marshall has been called to the scene to assist the Cass County Sheriffs office in their investigation.
