TULSA — Crews are cleaning up after a fire at a Brookside nail salon early this morning.
The smoke seems to be gone but firefighters are still moving in and out of Posh Nails and Spa on Brookside. They tell us no other businesses were damaged. We do see them looking around inside of a neighboring restaurant. pic.twitter.com/Up1AR3MExK— Mycah Hatfield KJRH (@MycahHatfield) April 17, 2019
Posh Nails and Spa was not able to open today because of heavy smoke damage inside.
Firefighters were notified of the fire when two men who were emptying the dumpsters at a neighboring business say they saw smoke pouring out of the building this morning and called 911.
At this point, firefighters said the cause of the fire is still listed as undetermined.

When firefighters arrived they forced entry into the building where they saw small flames, but Posh Nail Spa was filled with smoke.
They kept the doors open trying to air some of that smoke out.

Firefighters say they weren't able to tell where the fire started, because there was still so much smoke inside.
Neighboring businesses like Sushi Hana did not have any damage, but the smell of smoke and soot did make its way in.
The owner of Posh said he hopes to have the business reopened in three weeks. He said in the meantime customers can call the salon and he will refer them to another one of their businesses.
