West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - We begin our look at this holiday, with bleak news from West Fargo.
That's where a structure fire interrupted Thanksgiving for a mobile home community.
Fire crews say the blaze broke out around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, at 1312 Starr Avenue.
When they showed up, no one was home and flames were coming from the home's enclosed patio area.
Luckily, firemen were able to put them out before they could spread inside, or to other nearby structures.
Dell Sprecher/West Fargo Asst. Fire Chief: “It started going through the door. We were able to knock it down before it gained entrance into the home. Right now we're trying to get a hold of the homeowner so we can get a closure to it with him probably staying somewhere else tonight.”
Rob Sherrill/Neighbor: “Especially on a day like today when he's not even here.”
Ann Sherrill/Neighbor: “And being Thanksgiving, we're very thankful that they did get it out and we're okay and no one hurt.”
Fire crews say the inside of the home does have smoke damage, and they are still trying to determine the cause.
