PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI (WTAQ) - Much of Prairie du Chien's shopping mall is closed Monday, after a fire destroyed one of its larger stores.

Firefighters from seven departments helped put out a blaze at Slumberland Furniture in in the Black Hawk Junction mall. Units were called around 7:10 p.m. Sunday.

Officials said strong winds carried the smoke to neighboring businesses, and they were damaged as a result. There have been no reports of injuries.

Prairie du Chien Fire Chief Harry Renz said officers started battling the blaze from inside the structure -- but they changed to an aerial attack amid fears that the roof would collapse.

Crews spent the night putting out hot spots. There was no immediate word on what caused the blaze.
