Bee Hives Destroyed in Fire

Posted: Updated:

 Traffic was slowed down for about a half hour on highway 52, Southeast of Minot this evening.

 Around 5:30 PM a driver carrying a load of man made bee hives noticed a strap loose on his vehicle. He pulled over near Logan Hill and noticed smoke and flames in his rear view mirror.

 Minot Rural Fire Department was first on the scene, no one was injured but 156 of the bee hives were destroyed.

 "While we were in route we were told it was bee hives and they were what was on fire, as I was pulling up on the scene the driver of the vehicle was finishing downloading everything that was burning so the car is okay," says Rob Knuth, Assistant Chief, Minot Rural Fire Department.

 Minot Rural Fire Department says they can't speculate what caused the fire at this time.
