SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Firefighters from several fire departments were battling a blaze at a Spartanburg business Monday morning.

Firefighters said they got a call from the Asian Food Store at the Poppy Square Shopping Center on McMillan Drive at Garner Road about 4 a.m.

Most of the fire was contained, but they had to stop fighting it because the electricity arced, firefighters said. They said once Duke Power came out and turned the power off, they were able to extinguish the blaze.

Firefighters said the fire started in the back of the store. They said there was minor damage to the furniture store next door.

There is no word yet what sparked the blaze.
