The fire hall and town office of Rapid City have burned down in an overnight fire.

Rapid City mayor Orest Woloski says two trucks were also lost in the blaze, which was reported at about midnight. However, there were no reported injuries.

The town's siren was sounded, bringing people out of their homes to the scene of the fire.

The two were housed in the same building, at the corner of Fourth Street and Third Avenue in the town, about 30 kilometres north of Brandon.

RCMP say that they were called to the fire shortly after midnight. Information is still being gathered and they say the cause of the fire is undetermined. Investigation is ongoing with the Manitoba Office of the Fire Commissioner.

Damage estimates are not available, but police say they are considered extensive.

The Brandon Sun has a team on the scene. This story will be updated.
