Bismarck business was burglarized night of fire

BISMARCK — One of six businesses affected by a fire at a Bismarck office building was burglarized the night of the fire.

Police tell The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/193H19o ) that they do not yet know if the burglary and fire are related.

The fire in the Manhattan Building was reported by a passer-by in the early morning hours of May 2. No one was hurt in the blaze but damage was estimated at about half a million dollars and half a dozen businesses were displaced, including Farmers Insurance.

Police say Farmers Insurance officials now have reported that someone burglarized an office there the night of the fire and stole money.
