Crews Respond To Roof Collapse at Red River Valley Fairgrounds

WEST FARGO, N.D. – A storage building at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds with 30 cars inside collapses.

Firefighters say heavy snow caused the south side of the building to cave in around 5:00 PM Friday. No one was inside at the time of the collapse.

Firefighters say the building is a total loss.

“There’s a lot of cars that are salvageable, but right now the structural engineer deemed they cannot go in that building. There’s a lot of pressure going on the wrong way and there’s imminent collapse again going to happen unless they do something,” West Fargo Rural Fire Department Chief Rory Jorgensen said.

Fairgrounds staff will be contacting everyone who has a car stored in the building.
