A former carriage house on historic 8th street in Fargo is rubble tonight. Fire crews had little chance to save anything from the overnight blaze.

The building was engulfed in flames. Crews were able to keep the fire from reaching the family's home, though. Insurance adjusters were on hand Thursday to survey the damage. The estimated value of the garage is 80,000-90,000 dollars and the things inside about 30,000-40,000 thousand dollars. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Authorities say an extension cord running underneath the garage is one possibility.
