Ottawa Fire Services said that crews arrived at 10:55 p.m. to find flames through the roof and threatening to spread to several large propane tanks nearby.
Firefighters from nearby North Grenville also responded.
Firefighters checked that no one was inside and used an aerial ladder truck to battle the fire from above, spraying large volumes of water to cool the building, the fire department said.
Tanker trucks and large portable tanks were used to shuttle the water to the scene.
OC Transpo sent a bus to shelter fire crews while the city’s fleet services dispatched a mechanic to keep the tanker vehicles running. Ottawa paramedics stood by to support firefighters while Ottawa police and OPP officers secured the scene. Hydro One workers disconnected power lines so firefighters could work safely.
The fire was declared under control at 1:01 a.m. There were no reported injuries.
A fire investigator was dispatched to determine the cause of the fire.
