MOORHEAD — Firefighters returned to the same house in two days, as they battled an attic fire at 1930 22nd Ave. S just after 10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19.

According to a Moorhead battalion chief, the homeowner noticed smoke in the insulation inside the attic.

When crews arrived on scene, they found a small fire in the attic, and were able to put it out quickly.

It's possible the fire was sparked by a hot spot from the fire early Tuesday morning, Jan. 18, when a fire burned through the attached garage on the house, according to the battalion chief.

Fire crews could know more about the cause of both fires within the next week, the battalion chief said.
