DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A fire interrupted holiday shopping at a West Des Moines Target on Thanksgiving night.

Greg Jones, deputy chief of the West Des Moines Fire Department, told the Des Moines Register (https://dmreg.co/1Xlk5ky ) that the fire was near a fryer. He said the building was evacuated at around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.

No injuries were reported and the damage to the store was minimal. Jones said that employees had mostly extinguished the fire by the time crews arrived.
