Police are calling an antique store a total loss after it caught fire in Wister’s historic district Sunday.

Authorities got the call around 5 p.m. Sunday of a fire at the intersection of 106 Central Avenue and Highway 270.  An hour later, police say all that was left of Arlene’s Collectibles was tin and embers.

The fire also caused minor damage to two neighboring buildings.  It was all under control by 6:15 p.m.

Police say there are no reports of any injuries, and it’s unclear what sparked the fire.
