It does not appear suspicious, but investigators still don’t know what caused a huge fire that destroyed two businesses in Alice.

The fire was reported around 8:30 p.m. Monday on Woodlawn Drive.

It is believed to have started in a hookah lounge and then quickly spread to a business next door.

Heavy winds helped spread the fire, which turned into a massive inferno.

Crews from Ben Bolt and San Diego had to be brought in to help fight the fire.
