Late last night 911 calls started flooding in as people watched smoke and flames coming from multiple stores in the Meridian strip mall along South Meridian Road near the intersection with Gem Avenue.  The calls started about 9:20 p.m.  The Meridian Fire Department along with the Meridian Police Department were on the scene within minutes.

KTVB reports that the fire is believed to have started in a salon called 'The Nail Place'.  We still have no information on how bad the fire was or to what extent the damage is but it seems as if responders took care of business quick enough to knock down flames and keep the fire from spreading.  No injuries have been reported so far.
