HOUSTON - Firefighters said a fire at a northeast Houston smoke shop had nothing to do with the products inside.

Instead, the fire spotted by employees just after 2:00 a.m. Saturday was electrical according to Eastex Fire Department investigators.

The employees got out of the store on East Hampton and the Eastex Freeway and called 911 when they saw the smoke and flames.

Investigators were able to pinpoint the fire to an electrical shot in the wall.

It is unclear when the 24 hour store will reopen.
