Horace, ND (WDAY TV) – It was a very dangerous scene for firefighters battling a blaze near Horace Tuesday night. It started as a chimney fire around 9:20.

Crews arrived about 10 minutes later to heavy flames and thick smoke coming from the home at 404 River Drive South. Everyone inside had already escaped. A gas line helped fuel the fire that got into the attic.

Firefighters tried to enter the house, but there was a backdraft so they had to leave. The house became fully engulfed. Five tankers, including Kindred and Davenport, fought flames. The roof in the garage collapsed, as explosions from ammunition could be heard.
