VIDEO: Fire destroys home south of Fargo

FARGO - Fire destroyed a home at 404 River Drive S. near Horace Tuesday night and firefighters returned to the scene this morning to take care of flare-ups, Horace Fire Chief Ryan Hegel said.

The fire was reported about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, after neighbors saw visible flames coming from the home.

Shortly after 10 p.m., crews from Horace, N.D., and other rural areas had mostly extinguished the fire, although tanker trucks continued to move to and from the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, according to Hegel, who said two people who were home when the fire started got out safely.

The home was listed in the 2012 city directory as being owned by Richard and Kathryn Thomas.
