Authorities are investigating after a furniture store in northeastern Vermont was destroyed by a fire.

The P&S Furniture and Mattress Gallery in Concord caught fire Thursday morning.

The store had occupied an old 14,000-square-foot barn along U.S. Route 2.

Eight fire departments were called to the scene. Concord Fire Chief Richard Fisher says the building burned to the ground after firefighters couldn't get inside.

State fire investigators are still trying to figure out how the blaze started.
