Officials say the fire was due to a commercial stove in the first floor business being too close to a wall, causing heat to transfer from the stove top burners into the wall cavity.

At 9:18 p.m. Saturday, the Davenport Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 900 block of West 3rd Street. The fire department said everyone was able to evacuate the building as crews arrived and no one was injured.
