Fire crews are looking for the cause of a fire that hit multiple local stores Monday morning at a Topeka business complex. One board game business lost its entire in-store library.

The fire broke out around 1:30 a.m. at 3124 SW 29th St., near Gage Boulevard. The complex is home to companies including Grog’s Games, Moon Spa, Edward Jones Investments, C2Sea Scuba and Jackson Hewitt Tax Services.

Bryon Dills, owner of Grog’s Games, said the fire and smoke damaged his collection of over 100 board games in-house, and some of the store’s brand new furniture. He said Edward Jones on the building’s ground floor also suffered water damage from firefighters’ efforts to put out the fire.
Firefighters said they did not find anyone inside the business during the fire, and there is an ongoing investigation into the cause. They are working on a full damage estimate.
