ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say an arson fire at an adult bookstore in St. Cloud caused about $380,000 in damage.

Fire officials say about $55,000 in damage was done to the building, and about $325,000 in furniture and inventory was lost in the blaze at the Pure Pleasure store midafternoon Thursday.
