A fire at a Lawrence strip mall Thursday afternoon was an accident caused by an “electrical event,” according to a news release from Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical.
Firefighters were working at the strip mall at 2201 W. 25th St. around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, according to LDCFM. The building houses May Spa and Formosa Bakery, near 25th and Iowa streets.
“Our firefighters quickly found the fire in the attic and confined it to the area of origin,” according to the release. “During the incident, smoke spread to other occupancies in the strip mall, but fire damage was limited to the single business.”
There were no injuries, according to LDCFM, and loss estimates were still being determined as of Friday afternoon.
