FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE: Nearly 30 people are without a place to stay after a massive fire in south Fargo.

Just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11 fire crews were called to 605 11th Street South. When they arrived on the scene flames were shooting from the attic of the apartment complex as tenants fled from the building.

It took crews around an hour to knock the flames out. Once extinguished, fire crews found 8 cats still inside. Officials say all pets have been safely returned to their owners.

Fargo Fire officials say the 12-unit complex will need ‘extensive’ repairs before the tenants can move back in. While those 28 renters are displaced, The Red Cross will assist tenants with a temporary place to stay.

No injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and estimated damages have not been released.
