Fire Destroys Building Under Construction on Everhart

CORPUS CHRISTI - A fire destroyed a commercial building on Everhart that was about halfway built.

It broke out Wednesday night around 9pm at the site on Everhart between Staples and Alameda.

Firefighters arrived to find heavy flames and smoke coming from the structure, and had to take a defensive stance to put it out.

Traffic had to be rerouted off Everhart until crews could be certain the fire was out.

It's unclear what the building was supposed to become, or whether anyone was at the construction site when the fire broke out, but no injuries were reported.

The cause is under investigation.
