Two people are dead after an early morning blaze near the Concordia College campus in Moorhead.

Moorhead firefighters were called to a four plex at the corner of Ninth Avenue and Ninth Street South around 7 a.m.

On the scene, firefighters had difficulty opening a fire hydrant to help battle the blaze, according to Moorhead Fire Chief Joel Hewitt.
