A benefit dinner and silent auction has been set to help a Cass County sergeant and his family after their home burned last weekend.

Sgt. DuWayne Nitschke's two-story home near Argusville, N.D., was destroyed Saturday, displacing him, his wife and three children. The family's dog died in the blaze.

The benefit and silent auction will be at 5 p.m. March 14 in the Red River Valley Fairground's Ag Building. Cash donations can be sent to Gate City Bank, c/0 Nitschke Family Fire Fund, 3100 25th St. S., Fargo, ND 58103.

Nitschke and his wife, Darcy, were returning home from Fargo when they spotted smoke rising from their farmstead just before 4 p.m. Saturday. They placed a call to 911, but firefighters were unable to save the home or its contents. A fire flared up again Monday night.

No cause has been determined in the blaze, although one Cass County official suggested the fire's cause might be electrical.
