HARWOOD, N.D. — The Cass County Sheriff's Office is investigating a house fire that they believe happened because of 'suspicious activity' in the early morning hours of Friday, Oct. 7.

The call came in just before 3 a.m. Friday at 511 Wally St., which is just northeast of Harwood Park.

According to Tim Briggeman of the Cass County Sheriff's Office, the house was engulfed in flames when firefighters from Harwood and West Fargo arrived.

It's unclear if anyone was home at the time of the fire, and the house is considered a total loss, Briggeman said. As of 7 a.m. Friday, officials did not know if anyone was home at the time of the fire.

Deputies are investigating whether a vehicle that was driving around in the area at the time was involved in the fire, and neighbors are asked to check any surveillance footage.
