A fire in the village of Weekapaug in Westerly destroyed a recently renovated Fire District building.

The fire started around 3:15 Tuesday morning, and fire officials say the entire front portion of the building was destroyed.

Although the damage can be repaired, there were hundreds of historic books and documents stored in the office, which also acted as a library for the village, that were destroyed by the flames.

No one was injured and investigators are still working to determine a cause, though no foul play is suspected.
