Fire Destroys NE Iowa Food Pantry

FAYETTE, Iowa (AP) -- Fire has destroyed a food pantry that served hungry people in northeast Iowa's Fayette County.
   The Fayette Food Shelf lost seven freezers, two refrigerators and food in the blaze, which was reported at 9:15 p.m. Tuesday in Fayette. No injuries have been reported.
   The main building is heavily damaged but still stands. The adjoining thrift store sustained smoke and soot damage.
   The main building was built in 1920 and once housed St. Francis Catholic Church. The food pantry was on the first floor. A four-bedroom apartment on the upper level was home to college students. They weren't home because of the holiday break.
   Pantry manager Karen Martin and board president Sherry Pattison says the pantry served 1,900 people in 2013.
   The fire cause is being investigated.
