Fire at downtown West Palm Beach lounge causes water damage

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A downtown West Palm Beach business suffered significant water damage after a small fire overnight.

Investigators said the fire occurred at "Hookah Me Up" when a lamp left on was knocked over. 

The fire was enough to set off sprinklers and alarms at the smoking lounge located on North Olive Avenue.

Firefighters said this is a big reminder not to leave anything on that could get too hot when you leave a building.

“Put your candles out, make sure your lamps are off, anything that's flammable.  (Take) one more walk around before you lock your building up,” said Battalion Chief Greg Rogers with the West Palm Beach Fire Department.

Fire crews helped clean up some of the water.  The battalion chief said they will help more with the clean up once the owner arrives Wednesday morning. 

It's unclear how much water damage the business sustained.

No other businesses at the location were affected.
