FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo officials say workers were able to contain a breach in a dike on the city’s north side early Sunday.

The city says a permanent flood wall panel buckled at Oak Grove Lutheran School about 1:30 a.m., sending water flowing onto campus. Shortly before 4 a.m., the city said the situation was under control, but monitoring would continue.

City spokeswoman Robyn Litke (LIT’-key) says the leak was not serious enough to warrant the evacuation of nearby residents.

Oak Grove’s Web site says the breach happened in the steel dike on the north side of campus.

The city says the extent of damage to the school’s campus or buildings is currently unknown.
