A large fire was burning late Friday night at a commercial building in Nashua, New Hampshire.

The Nashua Fire Department said flames broke out at 495 Amherst Street, which is the listed address for a strip mall that includes Lanna Asian Market, Ciao's Pizza, an All State insurance office and Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream.

It wasn't immediately clear if the businesses were open at the time.

Pictures posted to Twitter appear to show the heaviest fire coming from the Asian market. The fire had visibly engulfed the grocery store, with flames and black smoke shooting through the roof.

The fire department instructed people to avoid the area and said Amherst Street was closed in the nearby vicinity.

There was no immediate word on any injuries or what caused the fire. Fire investigators will determine where the fire originated and why.

NBC10 Boston has reached out to the fire department for more information.
