Thick smoke could be seen across the Coachella Valley for about an hour as firefighters battled to gain control of the blaze.
Half of the structure is completely destroyed along with 12 nearby palm trees, according to Riverside County Fire. Firefighters remained on scene for approximately 2 to 3 hours for salvage and overhaul.
No injuries were reported.
