FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a fire that heavily damaged a popular bar and restaurant near the North Dakota State University campus in Fargo was likely the result of repair work.

Fargo Fire Department officials say the July 22 blaze at the Bison Turf started as a smoldering fire caused by work that was conducted earlier in the day.

The owner of the bar estimates that it will cost $1 million to repair the building.
