It has been more than a week since the Kate Spade flagship store in Highland Village caught fire and the store remains closed for repairs.

Houston Fire Department officials have yet to determine the cause of the one-alarm blaze that broke out around 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 15.

“The safety of our employees and customers is our primary concern and we are working diligently to re-open by the end of January,” Kate Spade New York representatives tell CultureMap. 

As KTRK Ch. 13 reports, 10 people were in the store at the time of the fire. Fortunately none were injured. Neighboring businesses, including clothing store Johnny Was, were not affected by the fire.

Firefighters pulled down the ceiling to put out the fire located in the roof of the Kate Spade store, as detailed by KPRC Ch.2.

No further details concerning the amount of damages or a specific reopening date are available yet. Arson investigators went to the scene to examine the fire.
