Firefighters shut down Mt. Rose Avenue in Spring Garden Township at about 2:30 Sunday afternoon when fire broke out at a local business.
Fire officials said Salon Oxygen sustained extensive damage. The building’s owners say the fire may have started when chemicals in a back shed caused the water heater to ignite. A video from a FOX43 viewer captured the sound of the heater bursting.
No one was injured in the fire.
“It looks like the salon sustained the majority of the damage,” says the building’s co-owner Robbie Lynd. “We didn’t have a whole lot that seemed to come into the building but the whole back of the building and some of the roof, as you can see, they’ve cut out a portion of the roof to vent it. I could see there was damage in there. There’s obviously going to be water damage.”
