Firefighters knock down house fire in downtown Rapid City

Posted:
Rapid City fire department is investigating a fire at a multifamily house in downtown Rapid City.

It happened in the 600 block of Quincy Street just before 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

When fire crews arrived, they found black smoke coming from the top floor of the house. They were able to quickly knock down the blaze.

Jay Pellerin said he was having coffee with a group of neighbors he saw the flames. He said he ran to the house to help get people out of the building. "I banged on their doors. She goes,'Just a second.' I told her she didn't have a second."

There are no reports of any injuries and the damage was contained to the top floor of the house.

Fire Department Spokesman Brent Long said it's likely something in a room caused the fire. He says there is damage to the top floor but they were able to save much of the building.

The Red Cross is assisting people displaced by the fire.
