CASSELTON, N.D.-A fire here heavily damaged a garage and a pickup parked next to it Wednesday, April 12, a Cass County Sheriff's Department spokesman said in a news release.

About 11 a.m., Cass County deputies were dispatched to a fire at the Mark and Sherri Johnson home at 131 6th Ave. N. When they arrived, they found both a detached garage in back of the home and a pickup in flames, Chief Deputy Rick Majerus said in the release.

The fire was extinguished within minutes and no one was injured, Casselton Fire Department Chief Tim McLean said.

McLean said the outside of the garage sustained significant damage, and the pickup burned enough to be considered totaled.

Twelve firefighters responded with two engines to the fire, McLean said.

A deputy state fire marshal from Fargo determined the fire was accidental, McLean said, but he had no more information on the fire's cause or origin.

McLean said neighbors across the street had seen the fire and went to the Johnson home to warn them.
