Students brace for river flooding
FARGO — Students practiced their dances and songs between sandbagging relays outside their performing arts school, where the rising Red River threatened to flood the area.
“I thought I would get a lot of experience with this internship, but I didn’t know that sandbagging would be part of it,” North Dakota State University student Laura Beauchamp said.
While volunteers worked at Trollwood Performing Arts School, the Army Corps of Engineers finished building a dike early yesterday to protect low-lying areas downtown.
Swollen from heavy rain over the past week, the north-flowing Red River is expected to rise about 4 feet in Fargo each day, before cresting at 33 feet tomorrow. Flood stage in the city is 18 feet. .
Neighbor saves home of fireman’s parents
TOUTLE — A volunteer firefighter nearly lost everything for his wedding when his parents’ house caught fire, but a neighbor saved the day.
Garrett Foster, 20, said he was on his way to the wedding rehearsal dinner Friday night when his beeper went off for a fire outside this southwestern Washington town. Moments later, a dispatcher described a “white, two-story house” — just like the one where he had been living with his parents.
All the tuxedos, wedding rings, marriage license, presents, his mother’s dress and other items were in the house when the fire started on the deck and spread to the balcony.
A neighbor, Ron Smith, made the difference between a scare and disaster, said Mr. Foster’s mother, Maribeth Foster.
Mr. Smith “broke down doors and went in to make sure nobody was inside, then got a garden hose,” she said. By the time firefighters arrived, the blaze was largely contained.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
