Redding interior design business damaged by fire
Sunday, Feb. 6
A downtown Redding business suffered major smoke damage Sunday after a blaze broke out in the office area of the business.
Redding Fire Department officials estimated the fire caused about $40,000 damage to the building and its contents. The fire broke out at about 8:30 a.m. at 1317 Tehama St., officials said.
When firefighters arrived they found a small fire in the office and quickly extinguished it, officials said.
However, because the fire had burned for an “unknown amount of time,” the blaze did major smoke damage to the business, which houses Jacque’s Design Studio, officials said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation on Sunday, officials said.
