Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Officials are investigating the cause of a fire in Pierre that damaged a business and two upstairs apartments.

Fire Chief Bill Alexander says two people who were in 1 of the apartments when the blaze started Wednesday evening escaped unharmed.

The fire started in a cardboard storage area behind Capital Sports and spread to the building. Damage was mostly contained to the building's exterior, though there was smoke damage inside the business and the apartments.
