The business was closed at the time and no one was injured, police said. 

According to the Starbuck Area Chamber of Commerce, the fire forced a change in the parade route during the Starbuck Heritage Days festival.

Four other fire departments and at least two other law enforcement agencies assisted.

The State Fire Marshal is investigating.

Starbuck Meats and Locker Services is located on East Fifth Street in the city it's named for, which is about 140 miles northwest of the Twin Cities.
