WINONA, Minn. (AP) The owners of buildings and businesses damaged in last week's fire in downtown Winona are inventorying their losses.

Three buildings were a total loss in Friday's blaze that burned several businesses, apartments and a mosque in an older part of the downtown area.

Torry Moore owns a sporting goods store called Sole Sport. Moore says that since his building is "pretty much gone," he's looking for another location where he can tally his inventory. Moore says most of it is likely lost.

Amy Jo Marks owns a clothing store, Pretty Things on Third, which was damaged in the fire. Marks says all of her fall inventory had arrived and is now covered in smelly soot.

Investigators continue to look for the cause of the fire, which they believe started in the Islamic Center.
