VANCOUVER (AP) — A fire on Sunday at a strip mall in Vancouver has destroyed a building that held a convenience store and several other tenants.

The Columbian reports that crews responded at about 5:40 a.m. to Sifton Plaza and found the building fully engulfed in flames.

About 36 firefighters fought the blaze but the $500,000 building was a total loss.

Officials say water sprayed onto the fire turned to ice, and sanding crews were called in to treat a street.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
