The Goodwill store in Searcy is considered a loss after a fire early Friday, officials said.
Searcy Fire Department Battalion Chief Carl Raia said firefighters arrived at the store at 3707 E. Race Ave. about 4:30 a.m. after a police officer responding to a burglary alarm found it on fire.
Raia said the rear of the structure was engulfed in flames when the first crews arrived and the flames soon spread to the roof.
Firefighters remained on scene until about 11:30 a.m.
Raia said the cause isn't yet known.
Jennifer Denney, a spokesman for the Searcy Police Department, said the Fire Department was handling the investigation.
"If anything leads to something we need to investigate, we'll go from there," she said.
Denney said a temporary Goodwill store is expected to open as early as next week at the corner of Benton and Race streets.
