Witnesses said someone didn't make it out, but it's unclear who, if anyone

A fire broke out at Minnehaha Lake Wine and Spirits in Minneapolis on Thursday, the third night of protests in the area over the death of George Floyd.

Minneapolis firefighters returned Tuesday to the burned-out remains of a Lake Street liquor store to search for a body after witnesses reported that a man didn't make it out when the building was torched during last week's riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Crews inspected the twisted heap of metal at the intersection of Minnehaha Avenue and E. Lake Street once more, but their efforts were short-lived.

"Due to the condition of the building, a thorough search is no longer possible," said Assistant Fire Chief for Operations Bryan Tyner.
