Vacant commercial building on Fort Road destroyed in morning fire
Cause of fire unknown
Fire officials are investigating after a vacant commercial building in north Edmonton was gutted by a fire early Tuesday morning.
Edmonton firefighters were called to the scene on Fort Road near 128th Avenue at around 4:30 a.m., said Brittany Lewchuk a spokesperson for Edmonton Fire Rescue Services.
The building's roof collapsed as a result of the fire, Lewchuk said on Tuesday.
"The building was vacant and seems to have been vacant for a few years," she said.
No injuries were reported, Lewchuk said.
More than 40 firefighters worked on the fire until it was brought under control at around 7:05 a.m.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The damages have yet to be determined.
