Fargo family safe after early morning fire

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo fire officials say residents and pets were able to escape an early morning house fire that was contained to attic space.

Firefighters arriving at the house about 3:30 a.m. found heavy smoke coming from the attic vents. The home's residents, five dogs and a cat were able to get out before crews controlled the fire.

There was light smoke damage to the main living area of the house, and the fire caused moderate structural damage to the roof of the house and a portion of the kitchen ceiling.

The family was provided temporary housing from the Red Cross.

Officials say the cause appears to be an electrical problem in the attic, but the fire remains under investigation.
