GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Flames and heavy smoke damaged a south Grand Forks apartment building on S. 17th St. Friday morning.

No one was injured in the fire, but a few firefighters were treated for minor injuries.

Firefighters were on scene for about two hours, trying to contain the blaze on the top floor of the 12-unit apartment complex at 2627 S. 17th St.

The fire apparently started in unit 11, in the southwest corner of the third story.

Firefighters used ladders to evacuate some of the apartment's residents and their animals.

It appears the fire was confined to the southwest corner, but the building has significant smoke and water damage.
