FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - Fire has destroyed a Fort Dodge carpet business that has been in operation since the 1950s.

KCCI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1IhqB2B ) the fire was reported about 4 a.m. Tuesday at Jim’s Carpet One.

The blaze triggered four alarms, and fire officials say it caused about $1 million in damage. Part of the roof collapsed, and the building is considered a total loss.

The state fire marshal was at the building Tuesday, trying to determine what caused the fire.
