Fire damages Morehead businesses

Three businesses were damaged in an early-morning fire Tuesday in Morehead.

The fire broke out just before 2 a.m. at the H20 Wireless & Tobacco store on West Main Street dowtown and spread to a tanning salon, according to a WKYT report. A heating and air systems store did not catch fire but suffered water damage.
