Police investigate possible arson in Bismarck apartment fire
BISMARCK (AP) — Authorities in Bismarck are investigating whether an apartment building fire was arson.
The fire caused a partial roof collapse early Wednesday and forced the evacuation of all residents of the 24-unit building.
No one was hurt. All of the occupants got out safely.
Fire Marshal Owen Fitzsimmons says firefighters responded to the building around 4 a.m. Wednesday. The Bismarck Tribune reports fire and smoke were visible from a third-floor apartment when firefighters arrived.
The American Red Cross reported helping nine adults and seven children displaced by the fire.
