Crews respond to Mandan apartment fire
MANDAN, N.D. (KFYR) - UPDATE: The fire was put out early Tuesday morning. Mandan police tell Your News Leader they will remain on scene throughout the night.
Just over a year since the Sunset Bluffs apartment fire, another fire in a newly constructed apartment building right next door has caught fire.

Several fire trucks are working to put out the fire.
Firefighters have managed to calm the fire, but flames are still burning.
The Mandan City Fire Department responded and were assisted by Mandan Rural and Bismarck City fire departments, according to the Mandan Police Department.
Community leaders are asking for small toiletry items to be brought to the Blackstone Hotel for those in need.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Mandan Fire Department is responding to a fire at Eagle Ridge Apartments in Mandan, located right next to where the Sunset Bluff apartment building was before that complex caught on fire last year.
