SHERMAN, Texas -- Investigators say the fire that destroyed a former convenience store just south of downtown Sherman early Sunday morning was caused by a mechanical issue.

The Alon convenience store was declared a total loss in fire, which was reported around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Smoke from the blaze at the corner of King and Walnut streets also damaged the neighboring Aileen's Beauty Shop and the Pico de Gallo restaurant.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said it "will be closed for the immediate future," adding: "Looks like it will be a total loss."
