Streets are back open around a Grand Forks apartment complex, destroyed by fire Thursday night.

Fire crews blocked off the roads surrounding the Roughrider apartment on 17th Avenue South.

They needed to do so, to battle the blaze.

The roads re-opened late Friday night.

Tenants have been getting belongings out of their garages.

Firefighters are still on scene and may be for a couple more days.

"We will walk inside, make sure there is no hot spots and we're also monitoring the water levels in the basement." Captain Bruce Weymier from the Grand Forks Fire Department said.

The fire department is securing the building.
