WINONA (AP) -  Winona Fire Chief Curt Bittle says three buildings are a total loss in a blaze that damaged several structures on a block of downtown Winona.

Bittle tells reporters the fire apparently began in the Winona Islamic Center. He says it appears the fire burned for some time before it was reported around 2 a.m. Friday. He says the cause has not been determined. The state fire marshal will investigate.

The fire was contained around mid-morning. Crews then knocked down some storefronts so they could extinguish the debris.

The three buildings that were destroyed include the one that housed the Islamic Center, and another that the Brosnahan Law Firm.

The fire also displaced more than a dozen residents of upstairs apartments, but there were no injuries.
