Sonora, CA — Officials are investigating a fire at a downtown business.

The fire at the Sonora School of Sewing started at around 9:30am. An instructor in the building, Megan Houseberg, stated that the fire is believed to have originated in a vent that connects to the basement. She believes that a cigarette may have been thrown inside the vent.
