A fire that broke out at a vacant commercial building in Brampton is under investigation.

The building in the East Town Plaza, 16-26 Kennedy Rd., just north of Queen St. was reportedly once a grocery store but it has sat vacant for several years.

Brampton Fire and Emergency Services responded to the blaze after 6 p.m. on Sunday (June 26).

The fire is currently under investigation by the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, City of Brampton spokesperson Megan Ball says.

There were no injuries reported, and fire crews were on the scene for approximately four hours.

Ball said the building is considered vacant.

There is a proposal to redevelop the site with two, 28 storey mixed-use buildings.
