OSKALOOSA, Kan. (AP) - A fire in the northeast Kansas town of Oskaloosa damaged three businesses and a Masonic Lodge but no injuries were reported.

The fire Monday night extensively damaged a cafe and realty office and did minor smoke damage to a bank branch. Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig says the Masonic Lodge about the cafe also was damaged.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but Herrig said it apparently started in the basement of the cafe.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1gJOj7R ) no damage estimates were available Tuesday.
