WARD COUNTY, N.D. – A fire destroyed a small hangar and four aircraft Friday afternoon in rural Minot.

Crews got the call of a fire shortly after 2:45 p.m. at the Flying S Ranch just south of town, according to Minot Rural Fire Chief Rex Weltikol.

Weltikol said his department responded, along with crews from Minot City, Surrey, Burlington, and Des Lacs.

Community Ambulance and Ward County Sheriff’s Department also responded.

Weltikol said no one was hurt, but the hangar is a total loss, along with four nearby semi trailers.

The fire also spread to grass, but has since been put out.

Crews are now mopping up hot spots.

The cause of the fire is undetermined. The state fire marshal is investigating.
