UPDATE: Brad Howard, owner of Brad's Toys & Collectibles, say that many people in the community are stepping up to help him after the fire on Thursday. There are Facebook groups that are trying to raise money and other local toy stores are also stepping up. If you would like to help out, there is also a GoFundMe page for the family.
In addition, the Super Toy Con is donating one dollar of every ticket sold to help Howard rebuild his store.
Howard says the support has been "amazing" and that the toy community in Las Vegas is strong.
Officials are still investigating the cause of a fire this morning at 4:40 a.m. at Brad's Toys & Collectibles. 
The flames were too intense to enter the building when firefighters arrived at the scene. It took 30 minutes to put the out the fire.
There was no one inside the toy store when the fire took place. No injuries have been reported.
