Grand Forks Firefighters responded to a fire at the Simplot plant Monday morning. Crews arrived at the scene around 10:20 am.

The Grand Forks Fire Department says a fryer line in the plant caught fire, which caused grease filters to also go up in flames. Police blocked traffic on a frontage road during the fire. The blaze took about 20 minutes to put out. There were no reported injuries.
