(Fargo, ND) -- No injuries have been reported after a pair of calls for a fire at the Red River Commodities factory off 42nd street north in North Fargo Wednesday morning.

The Fargo Fire Department tells WDAY Radio that crews were initially called to the food processing plant around 2:30 a.m. on reports of a fire in the oven.

Then, an hour later, crews rushed back for separate reports of a fire coming from the chimney.

The high heat in the ovens and oil produced is believed to be the reason why the fires started, though Fargo Fire has not yet given an official cause or a damage estimate.

The incidents remain under investigation.
