A fire broke out at the USA Print & Copy store at 2044 Wilson Blvd in Courthouse late Saturday night.

Firefighters responded to the family-owned store around 11:30 p.m. for a report of black smoke coming from the one-story structure. Upon arrival, firefighters forced entry into the store and discovered an active fire in the back of the building. It was extinguished by 11:45 p.m.

Parts of Wilson Blvd, Clarendon Blvd and Courthouse Road were shut down during the incident.

Extensive smoke and water damage was reported in the printing store. Summers Restaurant, located next to the store, filled with smoke and required ventilation. A health inspector was called to the scene to inspect the restaurant before it could be allowed to reopen.
