The fire started outside of the structure, then spread to the interior.

One person was inside the building but got out safely.  There are no reports of injuries, CFD said.

CFD’s hazardous materials unit was brought in because there was some concern about the presence of chemicals and other materials.  However, there was no evidence of spills.

CFD are on scene and are investigating the cause.
