GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Two dozen residents of a Grand Forks apartment building were forced to evacuate after a grease fire broke out in an empty apartment.
Fire crews tell WDAZ-TV that a pan of grease was left on a running stove in a ground-floor apartment at Oak Manor Apartments on Monday. The occupants of the apartment weren’t home when the fire broke out and produced heavy smoke.
A person in a neighboring apartment was treated by paramedics at the scene for smoke inhalation. There were no other injuries, and fire officials say damage from the fire was minimal.
