A restaurant and a gun shop were among the buildings damaged Sunday afternoon while a 6-alarm fire raged in Rochester, New Hampshire.

Fire officials in that city confirm the blaze broke out on Main Street in the Gonic neighborhood, damaging three buildings in the area.

Phagin's Bar and Grill and Renaissance Firearms were two of the buildings that were impacted.

The fire has been knocked down, and no one was injured.

While fire officials are still working to determine the cost and extent of damages, the second story of Phagin's appears to be gutted, the roof absent, in photos taken on the scene.

Renaissance Firearms has been taking part in a promotion by nearby Hagan's Motor Pool, giving free AR-15s to buyers of select cars.

Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the fire. Main Street was closed between Church Street and Railroad Avenue, and was expected to be remained closed most of Monday.
