South Dakota town rallies behind owners of meat market after fire
The town of Flandreau, S.D., is offering help to the owners of the Flandreau Meat Market after the building was destroyed in a fire. The fire started in the back of the building early Thursday afternoon, reports the Argus Leader, and crews from multiple towns spent hours extinguishing the fire.
The business is owned and operated by Tyler and Sarah Kills-A-Hundred. Along with custom beef, pork and wild game processing, the business offers beef, pork and specialty products.
On its Facebook page, the City of Flandreau praised the fire crews who fought the fire and noted that many citizens had stepped forward with ideas to help the Kills-A-Hundred family.
“The family has asked for a little time to figure out what they will do next. The city, tribe and FDC are working, best we can, to help the family coordinate efforts they feel will most help them in the coming days, weeks, and months. We will let you know through as many outlets as possible, as soon as possible, if there might be a way to all come together and help them recover.
“Thank you all for the outpouring of concern and support across the community this afternoon. It is one of the most incredible things that makes Flandreau, Flandreau, and a great place to call home,” the statement concluded.
