HOWARD, S.D. (AP) — The owner of an eastern South Dakota meat locker destroyed by fire says he hopes to reopen in a new location in time for Saturday’s East River deer season.
Owner Tim Glanzer of Howard Cold Storage and Lockers found the building full of smoke when he came to work early Thursday.
By the time firefighters arrived, it was engulfed in flames.
The fire chief says cold temperatures turned the water into ice and made it difficult to fight the fire.
Glanzer says he’s already trying to open shop in a different building.
