COLUMBIA — Damage was estimated at $12,000 from a fire Tuesday night at The Village of Cherry Hill.

The fire started in the attic space above a vacant office suite located at 2100 Corona Road. No injuries were reported.

At 6:53 p.m., firefighters were alerted to the fire by an alarm in the building, and a fire crew arrived four minutes later.

Firefighters saw water and smoke coming from the building, which indicated there had been sprinkler activation, said Capt. John Metz of the Columbia Fire Department. Seven firetrucks were sent, Metz said.

According to a news release Wednesday morning, the building sustained moderate water damage from its sprinkler system.

The cause of the fire remained unknown and was under investigation.

Supervising editor is Ann Elise Taylor.
