Concord Fire Department is investigating the cause of a blaze that destroyed a commercial building on Manchester Street mid-day Thursday.

As of Thursday afternoon, Concord fire Chief Daniel Andrus did not know the estimated cost of the damage.

No one was injured in the fire, which was reported just before noon, he said. Firefighters responded to the scene after receiving a report of heavy smoke in the area.

The fire was most noticeable on the east side of the building, and although quickly contained, it “sent a large plume of dark smoke into the sky,” Andrus said.

Emergency personnel closed Manchester Street between Old Turnpike Road and Airport Road for roughly an hour.

Police said there were no initial signs of foul play.

The business building once stood at the rear of the lot where Stratham Tire was formerly located. The tire facility was destroyed by a fire on April 15 and has since relocated to an adjacent property.
