Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief Keith Watson said construction workers were working on AC units when a fire sparked around 9:30 a.m. The fire caused sparse damage to the salon and minor damage to the Med Exam adjacent to it.
Piggly Wiggly and Flowers & Gifts, both in the same shopping center, were spared damage.
An estimate of the damages was not available.
