Firefighters from several nearby towns have helped put out a flower shop fire in Woodbine, Iowa.
Authorities say the blaze began around 3 p.m. Thursday in the alley behind the Everything Ellen Flower Shoppe in downtown Woodbine.
When flames spread into the shop, a call went out for aid from other Harrison County fire departments.
As the fire threatened to spread to nearby businesses, residents lined up to grab merchandise and pass it out of the stores.
The fire appeared to be confined to the flower shop and the roof of a nearby building.
A person who fell on a street was the only reported injury.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
