[ARCHIVED] West Fargo residents near Main Ave. and Ninth Street E. intersection advised to shelter in place

Resident Alert

Crews from the West Fargo Fire Department, Fargo Fire Department and a hazardous material team are responding to an industrial fire at the intersection of Ninth St. E. and Main Ave. 

Residents within a 5-mile radius of the Ninth St. E. and Main Ave. intersection are advised to shelter in place due to an industrial fire.

What Shelter-in-Place Means: One of the instructions you may be given in an emergency where hazardous materials may have been released into the atmosphere is to shelter-in-place. This is a precaution aimed to keep you safe while remaining indoors. (This is not the same thing as going to a shelter in case of a storm.) Shelter-in-place means selecting a small, interior room, with no or few windows, and taking refuge there. It does not mean sealing off your entire home or office building. If you are told to shelter-in-place, follow the instructions provided in the American Red Cross's Shelter in Place Fact Sheet.
