Trinity Hospital Alert – Early in the evening on March 22, a fire of unknown origin broke out at the construction site of the new Trinity Health medical campus in southwest Minot. We have confirmed there were no injuries. Please continue to avoid the area so emergency crews can do their work. We expect fire investigators to be at the site through next week at least, and will share updates as we receive them. Many thanks to local fire and law enforcement officials for their response and for keeping the community safe.
