Fire destroys businesses in Fessenden, N.D.

FESSENDEN, N.D. — Authorities say fire has destroyed two downtown Fessenden businesses and damaged another.

Fessenden Fire Chief Perry Anderson said the fire was reported in the downtown cafe on Thursday afternoon, after it had closed for the day. He said it spread quickly into the roof and an adjoining restaurant-bar.

The cause of the fire is unknown, and both businesses are considered a complete loss. Anderson said the clinic next door was saved but has smoke damage.
