March 23, 2022

FARGO, N.D.—Fire has damaged Paradiso Mexican Restaurant at 801 38th Street South in Fargo early this (Wednesday) morning. 

Fire Department Captain Mason Krueger said the first crew on the scene saw smoke coming from the building, close to the front entrance where the majority of the fire was found on the east wall.

Firefighters used their tools to open up the main restaurant door to get at the fire and rotary saws were used to cut through clay roof tiles to attack the fire from the roof.

A damage estimate was yet not available. The cause is under investigation but a restaurant manager says it’s possible an electrical issue may have started the fire.
