Fire destroys Iowa town’s only grocery store

A fire has destroyed the only grocery store in the central Iowa community of Ogden.

The fire began after one of the owners closed Ogden Mart for the night on Saturday. The rubble continued to smolder Sunday as hot spots persisted.

Fire officials say no one was injured and say the cause is still being investigated.

The nearest grocery store is in Boone, about 10 miles away.
