Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A small engine shop in Moorhead is damaged after catching fire late this afternoon off Highway 75.

Crews responded to a fire alarm around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday and arrived to billowing black smoke at the former Akin's Electric building.

The fire damaged Valley Performance, a shop that repairs snowmobile, ATV and lawnmower engines.

When firefighters arrived, everyone was out of all three businesses in the building. No injuries were reported.

Greg Doeden/Asst. Chief, Moorhead FD: “It appears like were going to be able to keep all the fire damage to the north end of the building however there is an awful lot of smoke damage throughout the building.”

The cause of the fire is being investigated, but combustibles like oil and gas in the shop are known to accelerate fires.
