A fire at 203 Second Ave. N.E. in Mandan on Wednesday night caused major damage to the multi-unit structure and displaced its residents.

The investigation is continuing to determine the cause of a Wednesday night fire in Mandan that displaced a number of people.

The Mandan Fire Department responded to the fire in the 200 block of Second Avenue Northeast about 9:15 p.m. Firefighter/EMT Matt Hennessy said it appears the fire started in the basement or lower level of the multi-unit building and spread through the walls. Firefighters battled heavy smoke and bitter cold in their efforts. Twenty-four firefighters responded. There were no injuries.

An MFD truck froze up during the blaze, Hennessy said. Firefighters spent much of Thursday working on that and making sure a backup truck was ready. Firefighters were at the scene about four hours.
