Fire at Tampa health and wellness facility extinguished

TAMPA — Firefighters extinguished a fire at a health and wellness facility Friday morning caused by a "beauty capsule."

The blaze was reported at a two-story building at 3202 Nebraska Ave. just after 11 a.m. When firefighters arrived, smoke was visible from the back of the building.

Because the fire was quickly contained to one room, the rest of the building is still deemed habitable.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators determined the fire was caused by an electric failure from a "beauty capsule," a device used for detoxification of the skin, said fire rescue spokeswoman Debra Sue Warshefski.
