Four departments responded to a structure fire on Hayward's Main Street on Monday afternoon.

Fire officials say that they arrived around 2 p.m. To the Northwoods Humane Society Thrift Store and were on the scene for about four hours. 

Officials believed that the blaze started in the first floor ceiling of the two-story building. There was heavy damage to the structure, and the building may be a total loss, officials say.

A neighboring business was also slightly damaged by smoke and water. 

No one was injured.
