A fire in downtown Laurinburg is now under control, according to officials on scene.

Around 10 P.M. on Sunday, firefighters started battling the fire.

We’re told a few buildings had smoke inside, but only "Shirts Tails" was on fire.

The owners of that building say something caught on fire in the back room.

Several viewers said it looked like an explosion took place downtown and there were dozens of police officers and firefighters on scene.

A portion of the downtown area was blocked off from traffic.

We’re working for you to learn more information on what caused the fire and will post updates as soon as they’re available to us.
