SUTHERLIN, OR. -- A fire at a Sutherlin mini-mart forced neighbors to evacuate and caused extensive damage to the store.

Officials said the Stop-n-Shop market about a mile east of town caught fire around 8:45 last night.

Fire crews were able to put it out relatively quickly.

But residents said the fire was quite large.

They were told to evacuate because of an above-ground propane tank.

“Little did we know, there were propane tanks in the back,” said Marla Schaffe. “But, we knew two of the fire fighters that were volunteers that were fighting it and one of them gave my daughter a call and says ‘get out, evacuate.’”

The cause of the fire is still unclear.

There weren't any injuries or explosions.
