Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Fire crews had to fight flames and the bitter cold Tuesday afternoon.

A fire broke out at the old Akin's electric building in Moorhead.

Valley Performance, a small engine shop at 320 Highway 75 North received the most damage from the blaze.

Everyone was out of all three businesses in the building when firefighters arrived.

No injuries were reported.

The fire was contained to the shop, but there is heavy smoke damage throughout the building.

Greg Doeden/Asst. Chief, West Fargo FD: “It was a small engine shop on this end so obviously you have a lot of combustibles regarding oil and gas and what not but once again we haven't started our investigation into whether or not it played into the cause or not.”
