An early Monday two-alarm fire severely damaged an antique store in Old Town Clovis, fire officials said.
The fire at Country Rose Antiques & Accents, 530 Fifth St., was reported at at 2:56 a.m. Preliminary estimates set damages at $1.5 million for the structure and $500,000 for the contents, fire officials said.
Because the building was made of non-reinforced masonry, it will have to be demolished, fire officials said.
The cause of the fire is undetermined; it is being investigated by Clovis Fire Department investigators.
When the first alarm rang, more than a dozen Clovis firefighters were dispatched. They reported heavy smoke coming from the front of the building.
