The Journal & Courier reports the store was fully engulfed by flames and heavy smoke when firefighters arrived at the scene about 50 miles northwest of Lafayette. The smoke prompted the evacuation of some nearby homes for a time.

Morocco Assistant Fire Chief Matt Carlson tells WLFI-TV the store closed about a half hour before the fire was reported and that nobody was inside. Carlson says the store was a total loss.
