Fire guts beauty supply shop; 1 firefighter injured
HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — A Hampton firefighter sustained a minor injury while battling a fire at a beauty supply shop.
The blaze began at the Apple Tree Beauty Empire on Saturday afternoon.
It took roughly three hours to douse the flames.
Hampton Fire and Rescue reported that a firefighter suffered a minor injury to one of his hands.
The Daily Press newspaper reported that Battalion Chief Anthony Chittum said the beauty supply shop blaze was intense because there were a lot of synthetics inside the establishment, and when “that catches fire it produces really high heat.”
