Lake Worth strip mall fire damages businesses

An overnight fire that damaged a Lake Worth strip mall is under investigation.

The owner of Easy Reach Chiropractic, located at 2121 10th Ave. North, says their security company called to report the fire.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to the scene at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

When Dr. Barbara Adonis arrived, she says the building was engulfed in flames. Witnesses captured video of the fire, who said an explosion alerted them to the fire.

 

Adonis said firefighters ruled it as an electrical fire however WPTV hasn't independently confirmed that information with Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

Adonis said the chiropractic office and children's therapy center will be closed indefinitely.
