South Fargo apartment fire displaces two residents

FARGO – An early-morning fire Saturday in a south Fargo apartment building displaced two residents.

The Fargo Fire Department responded to a call at 4:23 a.m. of fire alarms and the smell of smoke on the second floor of the building at 3233 16th Ave. S.

Using thermal cameras, fire crews located the fire in the floor space between the first and second floor, where it had quickly spread.

Fire crews had to remove the ceiling from the first floor to extinguish the flames.

The residents of both apartments were away during the fire. There were no injuries.

Fargo Fire Department is still investigated the cause. A damage estimate is not available at this time.

American Red Cross donated a hotel room to the residents displaced by the fire.
