Residential fire in SD causes smoke visible from miles away

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- No one was injured in a fire at a residential unit with four apartments in Sioux Falls, but the smoke caused by the blaze reportedly could be seen from miles away.

SIOUX FALLS (AP) - No one was injured in a fire at a residential unit with four apartments in Sioux Falls, but the smoke caused by the blaze reportedly could be seen from miles away.

The fire at the four-plex in southwestern Sioux Falls was reported to authorities around 11:30 a.m. Friday. Firefighters tell KELO-TV they believe the blaze started in the garage and smoke filled the house.

Sioux Falls Fire Rescue says all of the unit's residents had already evacuated the building by the time firefighters arrived to the scene. Neighbors also shoveled snow off of a fire hydrant before emergency personnel arrived.

The Argus Leader reports emergency dispatchers received reports of heavy black smoke that could be seen from intersections miles away from the scene.
