The fire was contained, but a cause and damage estimate have yet to be determined. Crews responded to a second alarm fire at Aqua Nails Bar in West Linn Central Village Friday morning, according to TVF&R.

The initial call came in at 8:48 a.m. Friday and originated from an automatic commercial fire alarm at 21900 Willamette Drive, as well as occupants inside, according to TVF&R spokesperson Tim Nokes.

Nokes said that, upon arrival, responders encountered smoke and the call was upgraded to a first alarm fire — and later a second.

"There was smoke throughout the building, and the sprinkler system was activated," Nokes said.

Responders were able to control the fire after about 40 minutes, and salvaged some belongings.

Occupants of neighboring businesses were also evacuated. According to TVF&R, fire damage was limited to Aqua Nails Bar, but some neighboring businesses did suffer "moderate" smoke damage.

No injuries were reported, and employees were allowed to return to businesses which were not affected by the fire.

The cause of the fire remains unknown, and damage estimates have yet to be announced.

More information to come.
