DES MOINES, Iowa — Fire crews were called to the scene of a structure fire on Des Moines’ north side early Monday morning.
According to Cpt. Chris Clement with the Des Moines Fire Department, the call came in about the fire at 6:59 a.m. When firefighters arrived they found smoke and flame coming from the building. A second engine and ambulance were called to the scene to assist.
Clement says it’s a repurposed structure that used to be a church and two adult males were living there at the time and running a business out of the building.
One of the males was taken to MercyOne Hospital to be treated for minor injuries incurred in the fire.
As of 11:00 a.m. crews were still on scene.
The cause of the fire is not yet known but is being investigated.
