MOORHEAD, MINN. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE: The Moorhead Fire Marshal has estimated the garage fire cost $100,000 in damages.


One family is now dealing with serious damage to their home following a garage and house fire.

Crews were called to the home in the 1900 block of 22nd Ave. S. around 3:40 a.m. on Tuesday, January 18.

The homeowner tells Valley News Live has woke up to the smell of smoke and saw his vehicle on fire in the garage. The man, his wife and two children were able to safely run out of the house before flames spread.

Crews responded quickly and put out the fire but stayed on scene as the fire and smoke spread into the attic of the house.

Approximately an hour after the first call, firefighters put out all the flames.

The family says they will now have to stay with friends and family while they survey the damage.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
