WEST FARGO — Officials believe some mechanical work being done to a motorcycle is likely the cause of a garage fire in West Fargo on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

The West Fargo Fire Department responded to the call of an active garage fire at 500 First Ave. NW around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. When crews arrived on scene, heavy black smoke was visible from the garage. Crews quickly knocked down and contained the fire.

There is heavy smoke damage to the garage with the cost of damage yet to be determined.

The cause of the fire was accidental in nature due to motorcycle mechanical work, the fire department said.

There were no injuries to emergency personnel or residents, and damage was contained in the garage.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
