Fire at Freed's Fine Furnishings in Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Fire  crews in Rapid City have control of a fire at a business on Sturgis Road.

Rapid City Fire Lt. Jim Bussel says crews were called to Freed's Fine Furnishings just after 7:00 a.m. this morning.

When crews arrived, smoke was coming from inside the business.

Firefighters were able to enter the business, and found the fire in the basement. They worked quickly to knock the fire down.

There were no injuries reported, and a cause for the fire has not been reported yet.

Bussel says they had to close Sturgis Road between West Chicago and the bowling alley for a short time. He says they did have some people trying to go around the road block, and expressed his concern with that.

"We did have a few individuals attempt to drive over our fire hose, and that is dangerous and illegal. We will be addressing that a later date. We know it's incovenient to close a road, especially during a morning commute, but it is necessary for firefighter safety."

Crews remained on scene as of 9:00 a.m. to work on cleanup.
