A Fort Worth party supply store, Jugueteria Nili, is a total loss after an early morning fire, officials said.
More than 10 fire units responded to the fire in the 4100 block of Hemphill Street at the store, which sold piñatas and rented bounce houses.
Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Kyle Clay said the 911 call came in at 5:19 a.m. The first of 14 firetrucks and additional supporting personnel arrived at 5:24 a.m.
Deputy Fire Chief Landon Stallings said the business was closed at the time.

Firefighters saved two other stores that share the building, Clay said.
“There’s an audio store on the south end of that building, and I think they had a little smoke damage,” he said. “Otherwise, they’re still doing pretty good.”
He said the fire was under control by 6:19 a.m.
Stallings said no one was hurt, and the cause of the fire would take several days to determine.
