BOISE, Idaho — A business on the Boise bench was destroyed by a fire Sunday night.

The call came in to Ada County dispatch around 10:00 p.m. Responding firefighters arrived within minutes to the India Fashion and Grocery on the corner of Overland Road and Latah Street engulfed in flames.

No one was in the business at the time of the fire. There are no injuries.

Two other businesses, which share a building with India Fashion and Grocery, suffered smoke damage, but fire crews were able to prevent flames from jumping into the adjacent businesses.

Overland Road and Latah Street were closed to traffic for several hours while crews worked to extinguish the flames.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
