Nobody was hurt in a fire which destroyed a vacant building on Highway 28 in the Paudash area.

The fire broke out on Monday afternoon, at the building which used to be the Schnitzel House.

Highlands East Acting Fire Chief Chris Baughman says crews were on scene until about 8:40pm trying to put out the flames.

Baughman says the building is considered a total loss. There is no word yet on what caused the fire or what the damages will cost.
