Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- An apartment building in South Fargo evacuated, for a fire that spread quickly.

Smoke started billowing from the Northwest corner of this apartment building, a little after 2 today. The fire started in on the 2nd floor balcony area, got into the chimney, and spread to the 3rd floor.

Investigators aren't sure what started the fire, but believe it may have started in a fireplace, or somewhere close to it.

There is extensive damage, but most of it, is in 1-area of the apartment building.

Norm Scott, Fire Marshall, says, "looks to me like it's going to be confined to a few apartments in the northwest corner, i don't believe the smoke damage is such that it won't prevent a few people from getting back in."

There is no estimate on damages, yet.
