Mapleton Shed Fire Produces 15-20 Ft. Flames

MAPLETON, N.D. – Firefighters respond to a shed fully-engulfed in flames in Mapleton.

It happened around 3:00 Thursday afternoon.

The smoke could be seen from our tower camera here in Fargo.

Mapleton Fire Department says crews were able to put the fire out within 10 minutes and flames did not spread to any of the houses nearby.

The heat from the fire did melt the family’s trampoline.

“We got dispatched to a report of a shed on fire in a backyard, turned out to be a 10 by 12 garden shed, fully involved when we got here. Probably 15 to20 feet high above the shed. The shed is a complete loss,” Brett Czaplewski with the Mapleton Fire Department said.

The West Fargo Fire Chief Dan Fuller was called out to assess the fire. A cause is unknown.
