A new CITY fire has occurred at a water tank battery that produces about 1,000 gallons of water a day in Fargo, North Dakota. One person died in the fire, the Fargo Fire Department and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said.
Authorities said the man was trapped in a 20-foot-long mobile home that was on fire when firefighters arrived, the Associated Press news agency reported. Fargo Fire Marshal Norm Scott said the fire broke out in a third-floor bedroom and smashed a window, sending flames into the attic. Another version of the fire suggested that Lily Herzman burned boxes in the store and the flames spread throughout the building.
Skjonsby's Interstate Commerce Commission certificate allowed him to travel to South Dakota, but he had to obtain a permit because it was believed the trip would take place entirely in North Dakota. He would also have to get a permit from South Carolina, the state's Department of Public Safety said.
When firefighters arrived, they found smoke coming through an opening in the roof on the northwest corner of the building. There was no fire alarm system and the key could not be found, the fire department said.
Crews emptied the contents of the affected units to ensure the fire was completely extinguished, the Fargo North Dakota Fire Department said.
The fire was bravely fought by the three Fargo fire units, but the fire spread quickly in the day's 30 mph winds and the heat proved too much. The fire spread rapidly throughout the day with winds of 30 km / h. It was approved by Slough, where Third Avenue crosses Slough to the south, where it merges with the town of Fargo, and a city fire inspector was established. After the fire, Fargo city leaders passed a building code that led to most buildings being built of bricks. Buildings were predominantly built of wood, so stone and concrete pavements were required and irrigation of the roads used by the fire brigade was prohibited to mitigate further disasters. Reasons cited included the lack of a fire extinguisher, the presence of hydrants and sprinklers, and the proximity of the building to a stream.
The fire was eventually brought under control and firefighters were also assisted by the Fargo Police Department, the Fargo Fire Department and the North Dakota State Fire Marshal. Fargo police and the Fargo County Sheriff's Department also responded and helped with the extinguishing work.
Due to the large amount of items stored in the unit, it was difficult to extinguish the fire completely, but two responsive crews were able to contain it quickly. The fire service was called to a fourth alarm due to the nature of the occupancy and the size of the fire. As is customary with fire brigades on duty, two fire engines, one across the street from the fire, were blown up into the street. As additional personnel were sent to fire sites and rescue equipment as well as other emergencies across the city, all available firefighters were called to four alerts.
The fire department estimates the damage to the building at $750,000 and says about $150,000 in contents have been destroyed. The liability of Hartford does not extend to the liability of an ordinary carrier, but it does not cover the cost of the repair crane and its contents. As a result, the transport was limited to January 21, 1974, as repair cranes had a value of $38,981.45.
