A building in Whiteclay, Nebraska burned down on Monday afternoon. Arrowhead Foods was a total loss.

Bruce BonFleur is the director for Lakota Hope Ministries based in White Clay. He shot video of the fire and says it burned for almost five hours.

Whiteclay sits on the border of the Pine Ridge Reservation where alcohol is prohibited.  The liquor stores in the small town sell millions of cans of beer each year, mostly to tribal residents. But Arrowhead Foods  sold only groceries and no alcohol.
