The building, “some sort of market,” was showing heavy flames when firefighters arrived, officials said. The fire eventually spread to a welding company next door.
No injuries were reported, but neither building appears salvageable, officials said.
The fire was extinguished about 12:20 p.m., according to the fire department.
