KIMBALL - The Kimball fire department was called to a fire on Maine Street early this (Monday) morning.

Kimball Fire Chief Mike Schneider says they were called at about 5:00 a.m. at a business at 61 Maine Street.

The building occupied two business "Rehab Boutique" and "AK Graphics." Schneider says the fire started in the back of the store, the part that houses AK Graphics.

The business suffered heavy smoke damage and the blaze was contained to the back of the building.

Fire crews cleared the scene just before 9:30 a.m.

Schneider says they're not sure the cause of the fire, but they do not suspect foul play was involved. The incident is under investigation by the Fire Marshall.
