FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. — Fort Myers Beach firefighters responded to an overnight fire that sparked at Tropical Sunset gift shop.

When fire crews arrived at the gift shop located on San Carlos Boulevard, they saw visible flames and smoke in front of the structure on the sign on top of the building.

Crews then proceeded with a rapid search of the exterior of the building and observed the fire. They used a chainsaw to cut holes in the roof to help ventilate the smoke.

No victims were found inside when crews initiated a search interior, according to Assistant Fire Chief Chris Armiger with Fort Myers Beach Fire.

The fire remains under investigation.

No further details have been released at this time.
