CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. — A fire that quickly consumed a Charlotte County Dollar General store continues to burn as of Thursday morning.

Charlotte County Fire Department confirmed the Dollar General on US-17 and Cleveland Avenue Wednesday evening. Multiple units were called in to douse the building with water.

Charlotte County Sheriff's Office reported that Duncan Road between Harbor Avenue and Disston Avenue had to be shut down initially to allow equipment to stage.

Fire crews switched to a defensive fight for safety reasons late Wednesday night.

No injuries were reported; a cause has yet to be determined.
