Firefighter examine damage and search for fire extension in early morning barbershop blaze.
Neighbors were awoken by an explosion this morning and looked out their windows to discover smoke and flames coming from the barber shop next door to them. Just before 1:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, Sacramento Fire responded to a structure fire at the 3B’s Barber Shop and Beauty College on Grand Ave and Dry Creek Rd. Marcellous York, an employee at the barber shop (living next door), said he woke up to a loud explosion and noticed there was smoke coming from the shop and called 911.
The part of the shop that caught on fire was the beauty college section, which is a add-on to the barber shop that came from McClellan AFB. The college had four students currently enrolled, and it was frustrating for the owner to see that part of his business in flames.
