(Fargo, ND) -- One person has been displaced after a house fire in South Fargo.

The Fargo Fire Department tells WDAY Radio that at approximately 7:45 p.m. crews responded to a second alarm fire at 1541 14 1/2 Street South. A single occupant inside the home smelled smoke, at which time they called 911 and evacuated the house safely before crews arrived on-scene.

After firefighters arrived, they noticed smoke coming from the roof of the home and encountered high heat temperatures while searching for the location of the fire. Firefighters ultimately located the fire on the second-floor in a bedroom and were able to successfully extinguish it.

The Department responded with six apparatus, which includes 18 firefighters, and two battalion chiefs, while also being assisted by The Fargo Police Department, Sanford Ambulance and the Salvation Army.

No injuries occurred, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

An initial damage estimate is undetermined as of Tuesday evening.
