  • A caregiver and seven children escaped a small fire in a West Fargo mobile home daycare.
    The Forum reports that the kids were huddled in a sport utility vehicle as firefighters arrived about 10:15 a.m. Monday. A nearby sanitation worker who's also a volunteer firefighter heard the call and responded.
    West Fargo Fire Chief Roy Schatschneider says the firefighter went inside, grabbed the burning material and hauled it outside. The firefighter then took shovels of snow inside to extinguish the burning carpet.
    Schatschneider says the fire started in a bedroom in an electrical outlet shared by a heater and radio. The wires shorted out, igniting a pair of blue jeans on the floor.
    He says there were no injuries, but the blaze left a smoky smell.
