NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Firefighters have knocked down a small fire inside a Norfolk business Thursday morning.
Battalion Chief Julian Williamson with Norfolk Fire and Rescue said firefighters were dispatched to the 2000 block of Colley Avenue for a report of a structure fire inside a commercial building.
When they arrived, they found black smoke showing from the building and forced their way inside.
At first crews believed the fire was located at Cell Phones R Us, but was later determined to be at an electronic repair shop adjacent to the building. The fire was contained quickly and is being blamed on combustible materials too close to a heat source.
Cell Phones R Us and a beauty salon, Transformed, suffered some smoke damage.
