According to Sioux Center Fire Chief David Van Holland, about 10:20 AM, the Sioux Center and Hull Fire Departments were called to the report of smoke coming from the roof of Las Palmas Mexican Grocery Store at 33 Fourth Street Northwest, which is the former bowling alley building, a block west of Highway 75. The same building houses Promise Community Health Center, but their part of the building sustained no damage says Van Holland.

The chief says the fire department saw smoke coming from the east side of the building as they approached the scene.

He says some remodeling had been going on inside and some hot sparks got into an area that they shouldn’t have been, which he says started the fire.

Van Holland says no injuries were reported.

The Hull and Orange City Fire Departments assisted on the scene.

Chief Van Holland reports that there was five to ten thousand dollars-worth of damage.  He says they used a minimal amount water to fight the fire, and crews were on scene for about an hour.
