A two-alarm, accidental blaze in a Dana Point barber shop Sunday night caused about $225,000 in structural and equipment damages, authorities said.
Authorities received notice of heavy smoke and flames coming from the barber shop’s window at 8:12 p.m., said Capt. Steve Concialdi, a spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority. More than 50 firefighters responded to the fire in the 34000 block of La Plaza, he said.
The Kings Club Barbershop, where the fire occurred, was closed at the time.
No injuries were reported, Concialdi said. Crews had the blaze under control by 8:33 p.m., he said.
While an investigation into the fire’s cause is ongoing, fire officials believe it was accidental and caused by an unspecified electrical failure, Concialdi said. Officials estimated $150,000 in structural damage and another $75,000 in equipment losses at the shop.
Smoke damage was reported at a business next door as a result of the blaze.
