OAKES, N.D. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the cause of a weekend fire that destroyed a business and home in the southeastern North Dakota town of Oakes.

KFGO radio reports (https://bit.ly/1kqPWw1 ) that the B and B Gardens flower shop and the owners’ adjoining home were engulfed when firefighters from Oakes and Gwinner arrived at the scene Saturday afternoon. No one was hurt.

Oakes Fire Chief Jerry Hollingsworth says strong north winds and bitter cold hampered the firefighting effort.
