NEWPORT NEWS-Investigators are working to determine what sparked a fire that damaged a business in Va. Beach.

A passerby reported seeing smoke and flames at Newtown Plaza, in the 500 block of Newtown Road, around 2:00 a.m.

Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from All American Beauty and Barber Hair Studio.

While the fire caused extensive damage to that business, several others in the nine-business strip mall have smoke damage, said Va. Beach Fire Dept. spokeswoman Amy Valdez.

Over 25 firefighters who were called to the scene had the fire under control in about 40 minutes, she added.

No one was hurt.
