The roller shutters of the red-fronted shop had been forced out of position and smoke was seen pouring out of the building.
Mark Collingwood, watch commander at Keighley fire station, said: “The fire was going when we arrived and firefighters entered the front and back of the shop. We made sure the premises either side were safe.
“There may have been an explosion inside the shop as there would have been a build-up of pressure.”
Fire investigation officers were tonight working to determine the cause of the blaze.
No-one was injured.
