Officials Investigate Fire at Bridgeport Store

Fire officials are trying to figure out what started a fire at a store in a strip mall in Bridgeport on Sunday night.

Firefighters responded to a store on Wood Avenue and aggressively attacked the fire from the inside, fire officials said.

The fire was contained to just the one store and was knocked down fairly quickly, authorities added.

The business was open at the time of the fire and only managers were inside, firefighters said. No injuries were reported.

The damage is significant enough that the store is expected to remain closed for a few days, if not longer, fire officials added.

Firefighters said the cause is under investigation, however, it could possibly be arson.
