FERNDALE, Wash. (AP) - A fire official in Ferndale, Washington, says a storage unit fire in a converted barn caused as much as $500,000 damage.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://is.gd/VqErhv ) that Whatcom Fire District 7 Assistant Chief Larry Hoffman said smoke was billowing from the eaves of the large gray metal building when fire crews arrived Tuesday morning.

Hoffman says a fire was burning in a locked unit in the middle of the five-unit building.

The building suffered structural damage and a ski boat, a truck and other belongings in the middle unit were destroyed.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Ferndale is north of Bellingham.
