The fire was reported at 1:15 a.m. Saturday, and 25 companies from three counties spent more than six hours battling the blaze. The building was demolished and a neighboring structure was severely damaged.
Birdsboro Fire Company Chief Vernon Kulp III says some combustible materials used in renovations may have helped prolong the blaze.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
