Email News Alerts

FARGO - The investigation into Sunday's fire that destroyed the Taco Bell restaurant on 19th Avenue North in Fargo is continuing, but the weather isn't helping.


Fargo Fire Department inspector John Arens said today that he's still conducting interviews but can't comb through the rubble because it's encased in ice.

Arens said there's a "good possibility" the cause of the fire may never be known.

An employee spotted the fire near a water heater and called 911.
