AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Roads in downtown Augusta are open again after firefighters put out flames at a business on Broad Street early Tuesday morning, officials said.

Firefighters received a call around 5:17 a.m. about a fire at Perry & Company hair salon at 915 Broad Street. When they arrived, the building was filled with smoke and flames.

The fire caused major damage to the second floor and attic. Two adjoining buildings received smoke and water damage.

The Augusta Fire Department is investigating to determine where the fire started and what caused it.

A stylist in the area who wanted to remain anonymous said they think the owner could have something to do with the fire.

"My first thought was everyone knows who did this," the source said.

A former stylist at the salon said they believe it, but also think it could have been due to faulty wiring in the building.

"The wiring is really bad," the source said. "When you plug your hair dryer in on the left, the power goes out on the right."

The owner did not return our phone calls.
