Crews battle South Bend barbershop fire

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Fire crews rushed to put out heavy smoke and flames at a South Bend barbershop.

Several firetrucks were called to Trott's Barbershop on West Washington Street around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

Thick smoke proved to be a challenge for firefighters. Due to the building being a brick structure, crews did have trouble putting out flames because it holds heat in.

Traffic was blocked off on West Washington Street while firefighters battled the blaze.

Firefighters believe the building was vacant.

One firefighter suffered an ankle injury while fighting the fire.
