NASHUA — A fire broke out Wednesday morning at a vacant commercial building on Main Street, and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.

A passerby noticed the fire around 6 a.m. at the former Workout World facility at 300 Main St. When fire crews arrived, smoke and flames were visible from the roof of the building, according to fire officials.

Two adjacent businesses were evacuated as a precaution. According to a release from Deputy Fire Chief Karl Gerhard, the fire was contained to the roof of the structure and was quickly brought under control.

He said the facility is currently vacant but was under renovation and had been used to house mechanical equipment until recently.

There are other businesses within the large commercial structure, including the Dollar Tree.

No one was injured in the fire, which is believed to have originated in the roof. The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
