Firefighters said the heat was so intense it caused the metal roof of the building to collapse on itself.

Firefighters are expected to remain at the scene throughout the day to control any hot spots.

No one was injured in the fire, according to firefighters.

Fire investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
