The Miner Lake General Store on 122nd Avenue was destroyed by the fire at about 2:30 a.m. Mary Colborn tells FOX 17 that the store was built in the early 1896 and served as a post office and a train depot in the past.

A family of four was living in the building and they were able to get out safely, but lost everything. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help them.
