Augus 2, 2021 I Page Sheriff’s Department was on scene at the residence, on standby. The family’s two dogs, both Ger— man Shepherds, were outside at the time and bothwere unharmed. “The dogs both were affected by the fire, their water source comes from within the hOme, which they could not have access to,” explained Gerald. The home is located just a few miles North of town; It was saved from total destruction, but endured a significant amount of smoke damage. Every room in the home including both childrens’rooms located in the far back comer of the home, no where near the flames, was covered in ashes and black soot. The family had already begun the process of removing all their personal belongings that had not been destroyed by the fire itself and were moving the items into the back of a truck. Inside the house, Stenson stood at the top of the staircase, which‘ leads down into the basement. He pointed at the wall separating the garage and home in the upper comer of the ceil— ing structure. “There’s the firewall in there and it did its job,” he said. He also pointed out that if there was any other air source in the home besides the one small window where the smoke was rolling out, “we would have been in big trouble.” Rock Lake Fire Chief Jordan Stenson said the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time. The home also has significant water damage in the basement and areas where the fire departments involved ‘ had to extinguish the flames, adding to the damages from the fireand smoke.

Active COVlD-19 cases up steeply in state. Active COVID-l9 cases contin- ued a sharp upward climb in North Dakota on Friday, an increase likely driven in part by the fast-spreading delta variant and continued vaccine apathy. ' The state Health Department’s virus dashboard on Friday showed 431 active cases North Dakota, with 109 of them in Burleigh-Morton. Ac— tive cases since the start of the week have increased by 60% in the two counties and by 82% statewide. Eighty-five new virus cases were- confirmed Friday from 1,896 tests completed Thursday. State officials calculated a positivity rate of 4.6%, and a 14-day rolling average test pos- itivity rate of 2.8%. The latter rate has climbed steadily since a recent low of 1.14% on July 3-, though it re— mains within the target range of less than 5%. The newly confirmed virus cases brought North Dakota’s pandemic total to 111,570, with 109,600 recov— Mt.

One new death was confirmed Friday, according to the dashboard. The state no longer publicly reports the county, sex and age range of newly confirmed deaths, . but Burleigh’s total increased by one, to 197. Morton’s total remained at 102. Eleven COVlD-l9 patients re- mained in a hospital in the state on Friday, down from 18 just two days earlier. But state health officials are urging people who are not vaccinated against—the coronavirus to get a shot, to help stem another pandemic spike in cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Adult vaccinatidns in North Dakota began to plateau two months ago. The state’s vaccine dash- board on Friday showed 49.4% of el- igible adults are considered fully vaccinated. That’s up only about 3% COVID-I9 numbers are spiking around the country as the delta vari- ant spreads, accounting for most new cases. , l The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week recommended that people wear masks in public indoor settings in areas with substantial or high COVlD-l9 tranSmission. That’s cal- culated basedon new cases per capita and testing results.
