Glendive fire fighters respond to a fire at the Prairie West Apartments on the 900 block of South Pearson Tuesday afternoon. The small fan in a living room in one of the apartments shorted out and started a fire. Fire damage was limited to the walls in the corner of the living room, however there was smoke damage throughout the apartment. The department responded with two pumper trucks and 11 firefighters and were on scene a little more than an hour, according to GFD Assistant Fire Chief Rick Micheletto.
