Investigators are working to determine the cause of a Wednesday morning fire that caused heavy damage to a women’s formal-wear store in the 900 block of Kaliste Saloom Road, Fire Department spokesman Alton Trahan said.

The blaze at Belle Amie Boutique originated about 6 a.m. near the back door, where the business’s electrical box was located, Trahan said. The business sustained substantial damage to its interior and to its attic and roof area, Trahan said in a news release.

Lafayette Utilities System was working to restore power at neighboring businesses Wednesday afternoon after the fire damaged adjacent power lines, Trahan said.
