CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Employees and customers at the Forever Art tattoo parlor on SPID near Nile had to make a run for it when smoke started bellowing out of the store.

It turns out, there was a small trash fire in the back of the store. An employee was able to put it out with a fire extinguisher, and fire crews arrived on the scene quickly to get rid of the smoke.

The store was able to remain open once the scene was cleared. There has been no word on what sparked the fire.
