MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A thrift store inside a shopping center caught on fire Wednesday night.

The store is on the corner of Lamar Avenue and Kerr Avenue. Memphis Fire Department said the fire started at Wolfpack Thrift Store and moved to the Simply 10 store next door.

The fire caused smoke to billow high into the air.

The owner of the store was still in shock.

"We're thinking our utility box is faulty and the main box. I just really can't talk right now," Wolfpack owner Charlene Grouter-Ford said.

The store was closed at the time, and there are no citizen injuries. However, a firefighter was taken to the hospital with high blood pressure.

The fire department is still investigating what may have caused the fire.
