A passerby rescued two dogs from a burning home in central Sioux Falls over the weekend. Fire rescue says the passerby spotted the fire burning at 33rd and Hawthorne late Saturday afternoon. No people were inside at the time. The fire caused heavy damage to the home. The family is now staying with relatives. Investigators say the fire appears to have started from outside electrical wires, behind the home. No one was hurt.
A new city ordinance allows Sioux Falls residents to start bee farms in their backyards this year. But in order to become urban beekeepers, they first need to take a certified class within a year of applying for a permit. The city ordinance also requires the beekeepers to get written permission from their neighbors to start a farm.
