Authorities say a fire damaged Russ Kendall's Smoke House in Knife river Sunday morning, but crews were able to stop the blaze before it spread from the smokehouse to the attached store.

The Two Harbors Fire Chief says the smokehouse was lost to the fire, but the store only took smoke damage.

Crews are still investigating what caused the fire, and the chief was unsure if the owners were closing the storefront due to the damage.

Authorities also closed Scenic Drive to traffic while they battled the fire.
