Fire destroys south Dallas store

Fire destroyed a south Dallas convenience store overnight.

When firefighters arrived at Kim’s Grocery Beer and Wine on South Lamar Street around 5 a.m. Saturday flames were shooting out of the roof and windows.

It was difficult to fight the fire because the business was closed and had security bars. Crews had to cut away the bars to get inside.

They were able to quickly knock down the flames once they got inside.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.
