ORLANDO, Fla. – A well-known barbershop in the Parramore community is damaged after a fire late Friday, according to officials.

The department said firefighters arrived at 10:54 p.m. and the fire was out just after 11 p.m. Fire officials said there were no injuries.

J Henry, owner of the shop, told News 6 he will build back his business, but it might not be in the same location.

Henry has been cutting hair for more than 40 years, and his barbershop has long been a staple in the community.

Officials said the fire was accidental and possibly due to an electrical issue.
