Crews respond to large structure fire north of Minot

MINOT, N.D.- Multiple fire crews are braving the bitter cold to battle a large structure fire just north of the State Fairgrounds in Minot.

The fire is near the Roughneck Auto & Diesel Repair on Railway Avenue, though it’s unclear at this time if the structure on fire is part of Roughneck.

It’s unclear what caused the fire, but the fire has destroyed the building.

The fire has not spread to other structures, but it has sent a large plume of smoke that can be seen for miles.

Ward County deputies are redirecting traffic on Railway Avenue so drivers do not get in the way of first responders who are battling the blaze.

This is a developing story. We will have more information as it becomes available.
