A former smoke shop on Pacific Highway East in Milton has been destroyed by a fire.

Crews were called out at 10:17 a.m., and by then the roughly 8,000-square-foot building was fully engulfed, said Assistant Chief Russ McCallion of East Pierce Fire and Rescue.

Investigators still are working to determine the cause.

The building has been vacant for about 18 months, said owner David Bean. No one was inside and no injuries have been reported.

This story will be updated when more details become available.
