Firemen extinguished a small blaze at an Eastern Avenue hair salon early this morning (Monday, 21 September).
Deputy Chief Fire Officer Doorly McLaughlin confirmed that a team responded to a 911 report received around 5 a.m. of a fire at the Hype Beauty Hair Salon in Glazier Plaza on Eastern Ave, next to Cayman Glass.
"Upon arrival officers saw dense black smoke coming from the beauty salon located on the second floor. They were able to extinguish the fire within minutes. The salon suffered only minor fire damage, but extensive smoke damage also occurred," he explained.
The fire was seemingly caused by an appliance that is used for warming towels, Mr. McLaughlin said.
