Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Dana Dupuis said the fire was contained to the building where the fire started and there were no injuries.

The fire caused traffic delays as the road was closed in the area until 8:30 a.m.

Dupuis said a fire truck and hoses were in the road.

The cold weather also affected the roads as Dupuis said the water caused a sheet of ice to form on the road.

A Massachusetts Department of Transportation sand truck was called to sand the road before it was reopened.

A cause has not been determined and a Bourne fire inspector is still investigating.

Dupuis said the building was unoccupied.
