BLOOMINGTON, Ill.-- A fire in Bloomington has left one business with a big mess.

The attic of Z's Food Mart on W. Market St. caught fire late Thursday night.

Firefighters arrived at the scene around 11:45 p.m.

The fire was contained to the attic area of the store and was under control in about 15 minutes.

Due to the construction of the building, fire crews spent another two hours opening concealed hot spots.

Fire investigators say the fire was caused by electrical wiring in the roof of the structure.

No one was injured and damages are estimated at around $150,000.
