Garage Complex Fire in North Minot

Posted: Updated:

Minot fire crews battled a blaze in north Minot Thursday evening that engulfed part of a garage complex.

Minot Fire officials say the fire happened at 5th Street and 22nd Avenue Northwest between 6:30 and 7:00 pm.

A man was working on a motorcycle in a garage when he noticed some gasoline had ignited.

He was able to escape the garage.

About 14 firefighters were on scene battling the flames that consumed about 6 of 8 garages.

Along with the structure, firefighters extinguished cars and motorcycles inside of the garage complex, which officials say can be difficult

One of the biggest concerns was to keep the fire from spreading to other buildings.

Officials say the man did suffer minor burns and the cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
