OSKALOOSA, Kan. – In just a matter of three hours, several businesses took a big hit in the town of Oskaloosa.

Firefighters said fire broke out in the basement of a downtown cafe overnight before spreading to the other businesses.

No one was hurt in the fire, but before crews could put it out, the fire damaged Rose’s Cafe and Pia Friend Realty, along with the masonic lodge upstairs.

“It’s an awesome building. I loved being able to rent here and ideal location. So I’m going to miss that. I’m hoping the building will be up and running. I don’t know,” said Pia Friend, with Pia Friend Realty.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
