At approximately 8:15 PM on Saturday, November 14th, the Central Dakota Communications Center received a report of structure fire by a passerby who stated they could see flames from the residence near the intersection of 26th Street and Thayer Avenue. The Bismarck Fire Department was dispatched to investigate. The first arriving fire crew reported smoke and flames showing from the front of the building. The fire crew established command and pulled lines to begin extinguishing the fire and to search the residence. As other fire crews arrived they were assigned to secure a water supply, pull additional lines to attack the fire and shut down utilities to the home. Primary and secondary searches were conducted and confirmed that occupants were out of the home at the time of the fire. Once the fire was extinguished, an overhaul operation was conducted to find any remaining hot spots. When overhaul was complete, control of the building was returned to park management.
Seven fire department apparatus and 18 fire fighters were dispatched to the scene. The Bismarck Police Department assisted with scene control. Metro Area Ambulance was on scene to provide medical support. There were no injuries to any occupants or first responders. The occupant of the home has been displaced, due to the amount of damage to the home. There was fire and smoke damage to the interior and exterior of the residence. An investigation is currently being conducted to determine the fire origin and cause.
