Officials with the municipal fire department believe the building, which sat empty for a few years prior to being consumed by a weekend fire, is a “total loss.”
Crews were called to the scene at the end of Chisholm Avenue at approximately 5 p.m. on Saturday and spent the night and much of Sunday morning battling the blaze.
An excavator was even called in to assist with efforts battling the blaze — knocking down some of the building’s walls.
No injuries were reported as a result of the fire.
