The ATF is investigating a fire at the River City Health Clinic in Cape Girardeau.

According to the Cape Girardeau Fire Department, small fires were put out with fire extinguishers.

There was no serious damage to the building, although there was some water damage as two sprinklers went off.

The owner of the River City Health Clinic, Rhonda Wilson, said it would be closed Friday and probably Monday due to the incident.
