A fire broke out inside a spa in a strip mall in the Bustleton neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia early Wednesday.

The blaze along the 1900 block of Welsh Road was sparked about 4:45 a.m., NBC10 reports.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to bring the fire under control. They arrived to find flames shooting from a second-floor unit occupied by what is being called a spa.

 

It's not clear if any other businesses were damaged.

Fire officials reportedly believe the cause was an electrical problem, but fire remains under investigation, as does the exact nature of the business located in the second-floor unit.
