SIOUX FALLS | Fire has destroyed a home north of Sioux Falls and a machine shed near Draper, and damaged a business in Vermillion.

Authorities say a man in the home near Sioux Falls suffered minor burns on an arm in the Sunday morning blaze. He was alone in the home when the fire started in the living room and spread to the attic.

The machine shed caught fire Saturday afternoon. The Jones County Sheriff's Department says farm equipment including a couple of tractors inside also burned. Authorities believe an electrical heater on one of the tractors sparked the blaze.

Midwest Ag in Vermillion suffered an estimated $50,000 in damage in a Friday night fire. Malfunctioning equipment also is blamed in that blaze.
