At approximately 11:01 AM on Tuesday, October 23, the Central Dakota Communications Center received a report of a fire at a residence on the 200 block of Boeing Avenue.  The Bismarck Fire Department was dispatched to investigate. The first arriving fire crew reported a trailer home with fire and heavy smoke showing from the exterior.  The fire crew established command, and made contact with a resident who reported that everyone was out of the home. 

Command conducted a scene size-up and found heavy fire and dark smoke showing from the West side of the home.  The fire crews deployed hose lines and attacked the fire.  Additional fire units arrived on scene and assisted with establishing a water supply, deploying additional hose lines, and conducting a search of the trailer.  Once the fire was extinguished, fire crews conducted an overhaul operation to find and extinguish any smoldering materials.  When the overhaul operation was complete the trailer home was ventilated and a fire investigation was conducted.

Six fire department apparatus and seventeen firefighters were dispatched to the scene. Bismarck Police Department assisted with scene control.  Metro Area Ambulance was on scene to provide medical support.  MDU and Capital Electric were called to the scene to secure utilities.  Crisis Care Chaplaincy was on scene to support the occupants and the American Red Cross was notified. 

There was substantial fire and smoke damage to the structure.  The building was occupied at the time of the fire.  There were no injuries to the occupants of the home.  The occupants of the home were displaced by the fire.  There were no injuries to first responders.  The fire originated in a bedroom of the home and the cause has been classified as undetermined.
