Fire Department Finds Cause to Townhome Fire

Posted: Updated:

The Fire Department now knows the cause of the townhome fire in Southeast Minot that happened last month.

On December 27, the department received a report of smoke coming from the 16-home complex, causing residents to evacuate their homes. 

After further investigation, the Fire Marshall, Ed Hausauer says the fire started when someone discarded a tobacco product carelessly in a garage. The fire then traveled to the attic, and eventually moved laterally through the entire complex.

Due to the heavy smoke damage, residents were forced to move into the units across the street.
