GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A fire Monday night in a Grand Forks apartment building did nearly $100,000 in damage and displaced at least 10 people. There were no serious injuries.
Fire Department Battalion Chief Rick Coulter says the fire started in the bedroom of a second-floor apartment occupied by a woman and her daughter. They escaped, though the woman suffered what was described as minor smoke inhalation.
Residents of the other nine occupied units were evacuated and were not able to immediately return. Coulter says at least one person stayed with family while the others received assistance through the American Red Cross and the Grand Forks Housing Authority.
