COLLEGE STATION, Texas - UPDATE: The College Station Fire Marshal’s Office says a light ballast in the awning overheated, causing Wednesday's fire at Lippman's Music and Jin's Asian Cafe.


Originial Story
A fire in the Northgate area left two businesses damaged.

The fire broke out around 3:20 Wednesday afternoon at Lippman Music and the adjoining Jin's Asian Cafe on Nagle Street.

Bart Humphries with the College Station Fire Department said it took crews about 20 minutes to knock out the flames. Investigators said the damage was limited to the awnings and roof of the businesses.

Lippman Music Store owner Brian Lippman told News 3 there is no damage to the inside of his shop, but he's seen better days. He was out of town attending his father's funeral when he got the news about the fire.

Lippman said his store will be back open for business on Thursday, and there may even be a good fire sale.

Humphries says they believe the fire was accidental, but the exact cause is under investigation by the College Station Fire Marshal’s Office.
