Fire Damages Guitar Business

Fire heavily damaged a building near Duke University's East Campus Wednesday night that housed a guitar shop and other businesses. No one was hurt.

Durham firefighters were called at 11:30 p.m. to the two-story, wood-frame building at 1805 W. Markham Ave. near Broad Street. A sign on the building says: "Danser Guitar Works - fabrication, restoration, repair." Several guitar cases that appeared to have sustained fire damage were on the ground at the rear of the building.

The building also houses a massage business and other studio shops, according to a woman who was helping to remove drums and other property from site Thursday morning. She said the owner was too upset to answer a reporter's questions.

Deputy Fire Chief Dan Curia of the Durham Fire Department said most of the damage was to the rear of the building and attic. He said there was smoke and water damage to both floors.

Firefighters were at the scene more than two hours.

The cause of the fire was being investigated Thursday.
