There was no one inside any of the businesses at the time of the fire. "When we got there, there was from one end to the other, heavy smoke rolling," Stone stated in the story. "The fire started from the left end of the structure and a common roof took the fire all the way to the end of the building."

Officials investigating the fire said it does not look suspicious.

"They could have been grinding inside, and there was also a trash can burning outside that may have contributed to it," Stoner suggested, according to the story.
