A structure fire has resulted in the "total loss" of Hog Town Cycles, an independently-owned motorcycle shop in Lucan, according to officials.

Fire crews were called to the dealership at 164 Main Street at about 7 a.m. Sunday.

"There was smoke coming out of every opening in the building," said Lucan-Biddulph Fire Chief Ron De Brouwer.

Fire officials from Granton and Alisa Craig helped in the fire rescue. Together, they were able to save surrounding structures — but the shop, first established in 2014, was "a total loss."

Hog Town Cycles specializes in Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Damage is estimated at about $1.4 million. No one was inside the building at the time of the fire.

De Brouwer said the fire is not suspicious and the Ontario Fire Marshall's office will be arriving Monday to investigate further. 

"It's a big loss to the community."
