Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Moorhead Fire crews were called to the scene of a fire at the former Akins Electric building in Moorhead Tuesday afternoon.

Scanner traffic indicated thick smoke coming from the building around 12:15. A page was issued for all Moorhead Fire Fighters to respond to the scene. The fire was contained to a back room in the building; the room housed an engine repair shop. Crews had to cut open a garage door to alleviate smoke, and were able to get the fire knocked down.
