WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire that heavily damaged a Williston store many describe as a downtown landmark in the city.

The former Hedderich department store is an antiques shop and museum on Main Street and also houses a dental practice.

Owner Loye Ashton has had the store for decades. He tells KX News (http://bit.ly/2u4eCFM ) that everything seemed fine when he left the building about 5:45 p.m. Monday.

The fire broke out shortly after that. Nearby businesses were evacuated as a precaution.
