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
