Fire destroys garage, camper in rural Richland County

WYNDMERE, N.D. – A Friday night fire destroyed a garage and a camper near here, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

According to the release, authorities responded to reports of a garage fire at 7675 155th Ave. SE. in rural Wyndmere around 9:15 p.m.

By the time the Wyndmere Fire Department arrived, the garage was already fully engulfed. A camper, sitting next to the garage, was also damaged by the fire. Both are considered to be total losses.

The owners of the home had been burning garbage earlier in the evening, which the release said was likely the cause of the fire.
