Fire has destroyed a former hardware along the Eastern Main Road in Laventille.
The fire broke out at the Bachew Hardware building around 10am.
The hardware was officially closed in 2014 after the owner died.
The former owner's brother, who operates from another building adjacent to the former hardware, says the building was being used to store material.
No one was injured in the blaze. Fire officers are yet to determine what started the blaze.
