An early morning fire has destroyed two businesses in Pittsburg.

It happened at 4:00 a.m. just off of Highway 11 in the historic part of Pittsburg. 

Pittsburg Fire Chief, Carl Cravey, tells KETK they got the call that one of the downtown businesses were on fire.

On arrival, they found The Computer Emporium engulfed in flames.

As fire crews gained access to the fire, it had progressed into the attic area and caught another business, Nora's Salon, on fire.

Thanks to several fire crews, the fire was brought under control at 8:00 a.m.

Both businesses were destroyed in this fire and surrounding businesses received some smoke damage.

Pittsburg Police say that because of the structural damage, the sidewalks in front and behind the destroyed businesses will be closed. 

Fortunately, there were no injuries.

"Very good joint operation between all the different fire departments. We all worked well together...," said Fire Chief Cravey.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but it is under investigation.

KETK will update you as more information becomes available.
