FARGO, N.D. (KVRR) – Fire crews spent Monday evening knocking down a large blaze at the Mid America Steel building in Downtown Fargo.

Moorhead crews were called in to assist.  The Salvation Army and Red Cross also responded.  Xcel Energy was called to shut down power to the building.

The cause is being investigated.
