BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — 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 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.
