West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fire officials say a cooking fire may be to blame for a mobile home fire earlier this afternoon in West Fargo. Authorities say this mobile home at 1002 2nd Avenue East in West Fargo caught on fire around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews say the fire was called in by the homeowner, and the family living in that mobile home was able to escape safely. Fire officials say they were fortunate to contain the fire after experiencing water issues.

Dell Sprecher – West Fargo Fire Department: “We had a problem with the water supply at first; the hydrogen system here is not working adequately. We pulled in a tanker; got water established and had a quick knock down on it. As of right now, it's kind of leaning towards a cooking fire until further investigation we'll know further.”

The family will be staying with nearby relatives and will receive aid from both the Red Cross and Salvation Army.
