Firemen quickly began spraying the blaze, but below zero temperatures made fighting the fire difficult.
Hoses froze, and an aerial truck was damaged when its water channels froze up.
A resident rescued his dog from the burning building. The canine was revived with a pet oxygen mask by firefighters and is okay.
No people were hurt.
A spokesperson for the Ashtabula Fire Department says finding the cause of the blaze will be difficult because the ruins are encased in tons of ice.
