Emergency crews respond to fire in Moorhead

MOORHEAD, MN (Valley News Live) - Moorhead emergency crews responded to the call of a structure fire at 1205 12th Ave N, a two-story, four-unit apartment building, around noon on Sunday.

Moorhead Fire Department says they arrived to find a large fire and smoke on the deck and south side of the building lapping up into the eaves. Residents had evacuated the building.

The main body of fire was extinguished at 12:23pm, but crews worked for an additional hour to fully extinguish smaller fires and smoldering spots in the attic and other portions of the building.

There were no injuries, but residents were displaced from all four apartments due to heavy smoke and fire damage in the second floor and significant water damage on the lower level.

Officials say three of the four units were occupied at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
