Multiple crews respond to fire, apartment total loss
FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Multiple crews responded to a house fire in the 1000 block of Broadway Ave. N, at 11:32 am on Monday.
A neighbor reported smoke coming from the house, which was converted into three separate living spaces.
Fargo Fire Department says the fire was isolated into one room which was fully involved in the back of the home, extending toward the main door of the apartment.
A second alarm was called due to concerns that the fire could spread to the attic. Smoke had been seen coming out from the attic of the main house.
No victims were found inside the house. One resident had been inside when the fire started but self-evacuated as the fire department arrived.
Crews were able to extinguish the fire in about 20 minutes.
The apartment where the fire originated appears to be a total loss. The main part of the house and the attached garage only had minor to moderate smoke damage.; one resident will be displaced long-term as a result.
The damage is estimated at around $60,000.
The cause is still under investigation.
