FARGO — A group of North Dakota show creators is searching for contestants as they prepare to publicly launch a homegrown online reality show designed and set in Fargo.

The show combines "social experiments, heart-pumping competitions, and gut-wrenching eliminations," according to its producers. The venture was spurred by one question.

WALCOTT—A morning fire at a turkey barn has created a race against time for crews near Walcott. A barn on the Lelm farm east of Walcott caught fire Tuesday morning, and is a total loss. The fire took several hours to extinguish, and its cause is unknown. The Richland county emergency manager says there were no turkeys in it, but the fire did knock out power and create a massive water leak. He says the two other barns on the property contain thousands of turkeys, and if crews can't restore power and water soon, those birds will die.
FARGO—As threats of violence in schools become more common across North Dakota, the state's superintendent says she is committed to improving security.

Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says she's working with the highway patrol to see if troopers can have a presence in some rural districts.

FARGO—A wind and snow mix has created hazardous travel conditions in Fargo and the surrounding area. The DOT has just closed I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks and no travel is advised in Northeast North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota, where conditions are much worse than they are in the southern Valley Wednesday night. Fargo has been somewhat lucky during this storm, there hasn't been a whole lot of snow and high winds have been blocked for the most part. Outside of Fargo without buildings to block the wind, it's blizzard conditions with very poor visibility.
FARGO—The system used to alert you about serious winter weather has undergone some changes. In an attempt to simplify its system of weather alerts, the National Weather Service has streamlined the terminology it uses for severe winter weather events. For example, blizzard watches will now be called "winter storm watches," and freezing rain advisories will become "winter weather advisories." "(You) can kind of get confused between the differences," said Chandler Kallock, weather watcher.
