Large warehouse goes up in flames


A large warehouse went up in flames overnight, and it may have been started by people trying to stay warm.

The warehouse on Cowan Street is said to have been abandoned.

Officials say the fire started in the basement and spread throughout the building.

The fire grew so large that another fire team was called out.

Officials say homeless people may have been staying inside and possibly started a fire to keep warm, which could have caused the larger fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Despite a lot of damage inside, the building is not a total loss.
