MORRIS PARK -

A cigar shop on Morris Park Avenue is in ruins this morning after catching fire Sunday night.

Officials tell News 12 the call came in at around 11 p.m.

They say there was one minor injury to a civilian.

The shop suffered smoke damage on the brick and exterior. The awnings of the building were also severely damaged.

One woman who did not want to be identified told News 12 her husband often went to the cigar shop and even knew the tenant who lived upstairs. She says that many people called this place a second home where there was always good company and good spirits.
