Two men were injured slightly Sunday when their work truck rolled on its side east of Thompson, N.D., on “old” Highway 81. In another crash, two passengers were injured early Sunday when a pickup truck rolled off U.S. Highway 2 about 2 a.m. near Bagley, Minn.
A fire on its main street claimed one of the oldest buildings in Hatton, N.D., early Saturday.
The two-story building has been vacant for more than 10 years, with its last occupant being the Country Squire Café. There was no chance to save the structure when firefighters arrived about 3 a.m., said Dave Anderson of the Hatton Volunteer Fire Department.
A long wait paid off earlier this month when Hatton (N.D.) High School teacher Fred Strand found out he would receive a presidential award recognizing him as one of the country’s 103 best science and math teachers.
Severe thunderstorms rumbled through eastern North Dakota late Saturday and early today, dropping hail as large as 1.75 inches in diameter at Golden Lake near Hatton, N.D.

More thunderstorms are expected after midnight Sunday and throughout Monday in northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota.
