July 20, 2019

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls authorities say a fire that spread from a parked car to a nearby garage and house was intentionally set.

Six people escaped from the house and were not injured.

The fire was reported early Saturday. Fire officials say they arrived to find a single family home and attached garage fully engulfed in flames.

The Sioux Falls Police Department says the fire spread from a car that was parked near the garage. Two vehicles and the garage were destroyed, and the house was significantly damaged.

Police say the fire started “as a result of an intentional act” and is under investigation.
