Enderby Fire Chief Kevin Alstad says damages to the Super Save gas station are estimated at $500,000 - $600,000.
"There was extensive fire and water damages," says Alstad. "A lot of merchandise was ruined."
A hodge-podge of boxes, cleaning supplies and flats of Coca-Cola bottles sit in a pile outside the back of the building which is cordoned off by police tape.
Alstad says RCMP, Fire Investigators and Work Safety did some digging around yesterday to determine the nature of the fire.
"I haven't heard the conclusion yet," he said, noting more results will be released.

Four firetrucks were dispatched to battle a fire at the Supersave Gas station in Enderby early Monday morning.
Firefighters received a report of smoke and fire at the Hwy 97 and Canyon Rd. location at around 3 a.m. says Enderby and District Deputy Fire Chief, Shane Williamson.
"When we arrived, the structure was totally involved and we had to work hard to protect the propane and gas pumps," says Williamson. "Fortunately, we were able to take the fire down quickly and damage is to the building only."
Deputy Fire Chief Williamson says the investigation is ongoing but expects answers tomorrow from Work Safety, the Fire Investigators Office and Enderby and District Fire Department.
Police guided traffic around the scene while firefighters worked and will be called to help with the investigation if the fire is deemed suspicious.
