The fire originated on the first floor, which was apparently being used for storage, fire officials said. The cause is still under investigation.

While all occupants of the building were evacuated safely, one man suffered minor injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital. Fire officials did not identify the man or the hospital where he was taken, but they did say the man did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Roads in the area were blocked off until about 9 p.m., fire officials said.
