Beginning this Sunday, the Fargo Fire Department and the Fargo Police Department will be using a large apartment building at 11 12th St N in Fargo for training. The training will be taking place from Sunday, June 10th through Saturday, June 16th. There may be several fire department, police, or SWAT vehicles parked on scene during this time. A smoke machine may be used during the training, but there will be no dangers or hazards to the public.
The building is being demolished to clean up the site of a manufactured gas plant that operated from 1885 until 1960. Xcel Energy has been gracious to allow the fire and police departments to use the site for some training exercises. Once training is complete, there will be several contractors on site. If there are questions related to the demolition or clean up, Xcel Energy has a project phone number of 701.205.5701.
