FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A propane tank fire in Fargo prompted the partial evacuation of a high-rise apartment building.

Officials say a 1,000-gallon outdoor propane tank caught fire Sunday afternoon and was burning near two other tanks of the same size. Firefighters who responded had the blaze out in about 10 minutes.

Five floors of the 10-story building had been evacuated by then. There was no damage to the building, and residents were allowed to return.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined. No injuries were reported.
