NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D (KCAU) — Firefighters battled a structure fire at a North Sioux City business that began early Tuesday morning.
According to North Sioux City Fire Chief Bill Pappkis, a call came in about a structure fire at Sioux Laundry around 3:30 a.m. Fire Chief Pappkis stated that upon arrival, the fire had advanced enough that flames were visible from three sides of the building.
Sergeant Bluff Fire Rescue provided assistance in putting out the fire that had consumed the building as well as the sheet, blankets, and towels inside.
Once they extinguished the flames… The building was demolished by a backhoe. Fire crews then doused the wreckage with more water afterward.
No one was injured. The cause of the fire is unknown.
This is the second time the business has burned. The first was two years ago in November of 2020.
