SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Early Tuesday morning a fire broke out at a northwest Iowa business.

According to Sioux County Radio, the fire was reported at about 3:45 a.m. at The Yard Bar and Grill in Alton. Kevin Langel, with the Alton Fire Department, says the fire started behind the building and crews spent two hours getting it under control.

Sioux County Radio says two people were injured during the fire. One was a firefighter who needed medical attention but has since recovered. The other was an EMT who only received minor injuries.

The overall damage to The Yard Bar and Grill is still being evaluated. Officials report at least one nearby building received heat, smoke and water damage.

Langel suspects an electrical malfunction may have started the fire, but the official cause has not yet been determined.
