Deck fire in North Fargo starts from futon

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Smoking materials led to a deck starting on fire in North Fargo overnight.

It happened at 11-02 19th Street around 3:30. A passerby saw the blaze and tried to put it with snow before firefighters arrived. Crews quickly put out the flames.

People had been smoking in an enclosed porch earlier in the day when a futon started smoldering. They brought that futon onto the deck, thinking the fire was out. But it later re-ignited.
