GRAND FORKS, ND — This week’s Gem is a leader and a mentor to high school students and adults in several communities.

NORTHWOOD - A call that hits close to home. It was the Northwood fire chief's first call as leader of the department, and he was very familiar with the address. 12 hours after the fire started smoke continued to billow out of Korsmo Brothers Trucking in Northwood as firefighters continued to hose down hot spots. The new fire chief pulled apart parts of the wall, a wall his dad built with his three brothers back in 1976.

GRAND FORKS, N.D.—Tonight’s gem was usually hard to spot, as he spent most of his time serving a community where you couldn’t see him. A man who risked his own life to save yours. It’s one last walk through the garage—commonly known as Water World—for Howard Kossover, as he wraps up a unique career. “It’s something people need. It’s not just finding people, it’s evidence searches, looking for items that are missing. It’s important and necessary,” said Kossover.
GRAND FORKS—What started as an investigation into the death of an 18 year old in the Red River Valley would lead detectives overseas.

"It is still a shock, still not real," Jason Henke said.
BUXTON, N.D.—While many communities want to put something so sinister aside - Buxton, N.D., proudly displays the scars left behind.
