Aberdeen businesses damaged by fire

Two Aberdeen businesses were damaged by fire Saturday morning. The fire was located in Magnolia Square, just behind Tidal Wave Auto Spa. The fire was reported at approximately 9:40 a.m.

When fire crews arrived, smoke and flames were showing from an area between Bliss Salon and Integrative Psychiatry & Psychotherapy.

An employee came in to see a client when they saw the fire and called 911. Numerous fire units responded and were quickly on the scene. The fire was knocked down and contained within a very short time.

There was extensive damage to Bliss Salon and the area between the two businesses. A fire official noted that firewalls between the businesses were a critical component that delayed the spread of the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Responding to the fire were units from Aberdeen Fire & Rescue, Southern Pines Fire & Rescue, Pinehurst Fire & Rescue, and Fort Bragg Fire Department. Also responding were Moore County Public Safety and Aberdeen Police Department.
