Construction is under way to build a new strip mall that will replace the one destroyed in a massive fire in December.

Construction started about a month ago and is expected to wrap up in a couple of months.

The Mini Mart strip mall on U.S. Highway 17 in Hardeeville caught fire in the early-morning hours on Dec. 21, 2011. Four businesses burned to the ground.

The heat was so intense multiple fire departments responded to the blaze.

The building didn't have any fire sprinklers, which may have contained the fire and kept it from spreading.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
