BISMARCK — Two people in a twin home that caught fire early Wednesday, Dec. 22, were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries, according to the Bismarck Fire Department.

At about 2:44 a.m., emergency dispatchers received a report of a structure fire in the 200 block of Aspen Avenue.

The first fire crew to arrive found heavy smoke coming from a front door of the twin home, and all occupants from both sides of the home had evacuated, fire officials said.

Fire crews used hoses to extinguish the flames. Medics took the two injured residents to the hospital. Their identities were not released.

One half of the twin home sustained significant damage, fire officials said. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
