Units from the Avra Valley Fire District, Northwest Fire District and Silverbell Army Heliport Fire Department arrived at the scene just before 11 p.m. Friday.
"Once on scene, units found a building with smoke and flames billowing from the roof of the structure," said Patrick Calhoun, spokesman for the Avra Valley Fire. "Firefighters entered the building and had to extinguish the flames which were in the attic space of the structure. In order to stop the spread of the fire throughout the rest of the structure firefighters had to pull ceiling materials to get to the fire."
It took 20 firefighters about 50 minutes to bring the fire under control.
Nobody was inside the structure at the time of the fire, which is still under investigation.
