PIERRE, S.D. — A weekend business fire in Pierre has been ruled accidental.
The Saturday night blaze destroyed the Branding Iron Bistro, and smoke heavily damaged the Pottery 2 Paint store next door.
Fire Chief Ian Paul tells the Capital Journal (http://bit.ly/2sdqzDV ) that the state fire marshal’s office conducted an initial investigation Sunday and ruled the fire accidental, though the cause still isn’t known.
No one was hurt.
