EAST GRAND FORKS, ND -- A farm building is a total loss, after a fire gutted it, and filled the sky with thick, black smoke.

It started around 3:15 Thursday afternoon, August 9, at a home off Highway 220 just north of East Grand Forks.

The family was home when the fire started and called 911.

Firefighters tell us it was mostly contained to the attic and rafter areas before the building collapsed.

It's unclear what was inside.

Crews continued to monitor the building throughout the evening, just in case it re-ignites.
