[ARCHIVED] Bismarck Fire Department Responds to a Series of Fires Early This Morning

At approximately 5 a.m. this morning the Bismarck Fire Department
responded to a semi-trailer fire on the south side of Main Stay Suites. A semi was transporting six-hundred, 20 pound, propane cylinders. The fire was contained to the cab of the semi. No propane cylinders were impacted by the fire.

Within minutes another fire was reported in the nearby Comfort Inn Suites parking lots. This was a car fire adjacent to a building and other cars. Fire damage was limited to one vehicle. Both of these fires are considered to be suspicious and the incidents have been turned over to the Bismarck Police Department.

At approximately the same time, an additional semi fire occurred. This fire was accidental. A semi coming off of the Interstate blew a tire that resulted in a brake fire. Damage was limited to a portion of the flatbed. The three fires occurred at the same time - two suspicious, one accidental. There were no injuries.
