A neighbor noticed the fire around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday and called 911. Dispatchers escalated the situation to a two-alarm fire shortly thereafter.

The roof collapsed, and all the windows have been bashed out.

Luckily, nobody was hurt.

A total of 21 units and 63 firefighters responded Wednesday. And, the ATF was also on scene, as authorities continue to investigate the cause.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office temporarily closed a stretch of Casey Key Road.
