CHELTENHAM — The YS Clinic and Beauty wig shop, 1921 Cheltenham Ave., was the site of a three-alarm fire called in at 8:16 p.m. June 27, police said.

The Cheltenham Fire Company reported the fire under control at 10:54 p.m. and there were no reported injuries, but some neighboring businesses sustained smoke and water damage, police said.

A report from Action News (Channel 6) stated the blaze was more serious than emergency personnel initially thought. 

"'With it being a deep-seated fire and legacy construction building, it's hard to get it opened up and find the fire,'" Ogontz Fire Company Police Chief Kevin Lynch said, according to a report from Action News.

An investigation is continuing.
