(Fargo, ND) -- A pair of early morning apartment fires here in the FM Metro are under investigation.

The first happened in South Fargo. The Fargo Fire Department tells WDAY Radio crews responded to the complex East of West Acres Mall off 15th avenue south around 1:30 a.m. after alarms rang out for a fire.

A small kitchen fire restricted to one unit was put out, with crews clearing the scene in less than an hour. Damage estimates are not yet available.

Then, about an hour and a half later, another fire broke out in an apartmentĀ in Moorhead near MSUM.

Crews responded to the apartment off 10th avenue south around 3 a.m. for reports of smoke. It is unclear how much damage was done and if any injuries occurred.

Stick with us for more details on both these fires as they become available.
