Flames could be seen erupting from vents in the roof, while windows shattered under the intense heat.

Four crews of firefighters moved quickly to douse the fire, but not before the roof of the building collapsed.

No people were injured in the blaze. A crime scene has since been established and it is understood that police are treating the blaze as suspicious.
