A total of 15 fire engines and firefighters from around the city were called to the blaze.
The fire is now out but two fire engines remain at the scene to keep an eye out for hot spots, northern fire communications said.
It is the second time emergency services were called to the same road this week after a ram raid at a liquor store on Walters Rd yesterday.
