“The fire was very advanced when they got there,” said Deputy Fire Chief Lawrence Gassert. “The fire was burning through the roof.”
Nine fire apparatus and 22 firefighters extinguished the fire, which was reported at 9:51 p.m. The first unit arrived at 9:55 p.m.
The blaze was controlled by about midnight, Gassert said. The last firefighters left the scene at 5:44 a.m. Monday.
A fire happened in another building, a single-story wooden garage-type building, on the same site in October.
Fire officials are continuing to investigate the cause, but because gas and electricity were disconnected and the building was vacant, those are ruled out as causes.
