GRAND FORKS — Grand Forks Fire Department personnel were dispatched to a house fire Friday morning.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., crews were sent to the 900 block of Oak Street. The home was evacuated, and the fire department used social media to urge others to stay clear of the area.

By 9 a.m., the fire — which started in the kitchen — was extinguished. There were no injuries.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
