Fire and police crews responded to a garage fire at the Cedarwood North Apartments in Minot shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday.

According to Captain Robert Johnson of the Minot Fire Department, a male resident of the apartments told the fire marshall that he was working on his motorcycle in the garage.

The man smelled gasoline, and left the garage when he saw flames.

He was treated for minor injuries at the scene, but refused to be taken to the hospital.

The fire was out within an hour and a half, but crews monitored the scene until 8 a.m. today. Six of the eight garages were destroyed.

No word yet on the cost of the damage. There were no other injuries reported.
