Electrical Fire in ND School Causes Extensive Damage

LIDGERWOOD, NORTH DAKOTA — Authorities probing the cause of a fire at the school in the southeastern North Dakota town of Lidgerwood have determined it was not intentionally set.

Deputy Fire Marshal Jerry Crane told The Forum that he was at the school Wednesday and plans to continue his investigation after the Veterans Day holiday.

School Superintendent Tony Grubb told KVLY-TV that officials suspect the fire was electrical in nature.

The fire late Tuesday afternoon at the K-12 school caused extensive damage. The school was hosting a regional volleyball tournament and fans, students and players were evacuated. No injuries were reported.

The tournament was moved to Lisbon. Officials are still deciding where students will attend classes during repairs.
