SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a fire that destroyed a home in Split Rock.

The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/29rq1GL ) the home just outside of eastern Sioux Falls caught fire on Sunday night. Officials say it was considered a total loss.

Authorities say homeowners had vacated the house prior to the arrival of emergency personnel. But the Red Cross says some pets perished in the fire.

The Red Cross says the fire started in the basement and spread quickly to the home. Though the cause of the fire is under investigation, Split Rock fire chief Darrin Tille says it is not believed to be fireworks-related.
