GRAND FORKS, N.N. (Valley News Live) People displaced by an apartment fire late Saturday night in Grand Forks are expected to be allowed to go home Sunday.

Fire crews got a call around 11:30 p.m. Saturday for a structure fire at 815 39th Street North, and found flames coming from a third floor window of a multi-unit building. The fire was knocked down and extinguished while the structure was evacuated.

Fire damage is contained to a single unit, with some water damage to the two units below. One person from a unit not directly involved in the fire was transported to Altru Hospital with unknown injuries.

Damage estimates are more than $10,000, but investigators are still trying to pinpoint the cause.

People in F building were displaced for the night, but will allowed back into their apartments Sunday.
