Fire Damages Three-Story In South End

The fire is out and no one was hurt but, a three story South end building housing several businesses did suffer damage.Crews arriving after 11 this morning could see black smoke coming from the blaze at 57 Ross Street.
District Fire Chief Eric Garland says the fire began in Port City Furniture Plus which contains a lot of equipment.

Garland adds fire investigators are looking into the cause but it does not appear to be suspicious.

The origin of the fire is a room used for general storage closer to the Ross street entrance.
It's expected the building will be closed for a few days.
