Moorhead High School students alert homeowner to fire
MOORHEAD - Moorhead High School seniors Zach Mithun and Andrew Nord were driving back to school after lunch Wednesday afternoon when they noticed grass on fire in the yard at 3006 Village Green Drive.
When they took a closer look, they saw the corner of the house was also smoldering.
Mithun and Nord knocked on the door, waking up homeowner Kathy Steinkuehler from her nap.
Steinkuehler said she is grateful for the boys and their prompt response. She said she would not otherwise have been aware of the fire.
Firefighters examined the yard and home, but the cause of the fire is still unknown.
The damage was contained to the corner of the house.
