Garage fire causes heavy damage in north Fargo
The Fargo Fire Department responded to a six-unit garage fire at 4:03 p.m. Thursday.
Crews arrived at 825 14th St. N. and saw heavy smoke coming from the building.
The threecenter garage stalls were on fire and ended up heavily damaged. Power saws had to be used to cut through locked overhead doors, but the fire was under control about 15 minutes after firefighters arrived.
It took about three hours to investigate the fire and go through the building to ensure all smoldering areas were extinguished, a news release from the fire department said.
Investigators were unable to positively determine a cause for the fire. Damage is estimated to be $60,000 to the building and personal property, the release said.
