Fire breaks out at downtown storefront

At least one person suffered burns Thursday evening when a fire broke out at a nail salon in the 1400 block of Second Street, according to the Napa Fire Department.

The fire was reported at about 8:30 p.m. The extent of the man’s injuries was unclear as of 9 p.m.

Flames spread to the attic, sending smoke to the businesses along the street block. Affected stores included a shoe store, a dry cleaner and a frame shop. Firefighters cut through the ceiling to reach the fire in the attic area.

As of 9 p.m., Second Street was closed to traffic. The street block was expected to remain closed for a few hours, said Battalion Chief Steve Brassfield.

    That little block of stores is such a unique area of our downtown. Dear shop owners, we are thinking of all of you. Please let us know how your customers can help. Our thoughts are especially with Tom, his family and staff. This is the link that was in a previous article and is a fundraiser for Tom. I so appreciate whomever started it.
