FARGO – A broken motor in the air conditioning system of the Black Building created light smoke on the seventh floor and prompted an evacuation this morning, a Fargo fire official said.

“No major damage,” Battalion Chief Lee Soeth said. “They’re going to have to replace one ventilation unit.”

Firefighters were sent to the downtown building at 118 Broadway about 9:45 a.m.
