Fire at The Fountains in Roseville closes businesses

By Max Ehrenfreund

Article Salon and Spa and Z Gallerie at The Fountains in Roseville are closed today after a fire damaged both businesses Thursday night. Roseville Fire Department assistant chief Jeff Carman said the fire was apparently electrical in origin.

When the fire started in the spa, the building's sprinklers turned on, stopping the spread of the fire. Fire department crews arrived about 12:30 a.m., forced entry into the building, and extinguished the fire.

Carman said fire damage was minimal because of the sprinklers, but the damage from smoke and water was more extensive. He estimated the damage to the spa at $25,000. Darcy Phipps, assistant manager at Article, said she was not sure when the spa would reopen.

Carman said smoke had damaged furniture at Z Gallerie, but he was unable to estimate the value of the damage. A manager there said she was not permitted to discuss the fire publicly.
