Fire destroyed the Osage Meat Market on U.S. Highway 60 just east of the Arkansas River Bridge, east of Ponca City, Saturday morning.

McCord Fire Department Chief David Rush said the State Fire Marshal was on the scene investigating the cause of the fire, but it appears the fire started in a smokehouse smoker behind the store. He said the fire moved into the main building before fire crews could respond.

Ponca City Fire Department also responded to the fire.

Rush said the building and contents are a total loss.
