WILLISTON, N.D. — A huge fire that destroyed two apartment buildings here Friday highlighted the strain on fire department resources as the rapidly growing city adds more multi-story buildings.

Darwin Stevens, chief of volunteers for the Williston Fire Department, said the department needs more equipment, including at least one 100-foot ladder truck, as Williston adds more three- and four-story apartment buildings. The city has one 75-foot ladder truck.
