TOMS RIVER - Firefighters are spraying down hotspots after a fire in Toms River destroyed a historic building.

The building located on East Water Street houses several business offices and dates back to the early 1900s.  

Fire officials say the construction was a challenge for firefighters.

Ammunition that was stored in the building also started going off as firefighters first responded, and firefighters were removed from the area as a result.

No one was hurt in the fire, and officials are now investigating how it started.
