The Dunwoody Police Department reported via social media that they received a call about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday that there was a fire in the Dunwoody Village shopping center.

“Our officers arrived within seconds and observed fire coming from the roof of two suites,” the post to Facebook said. “Our officers began evacuating businesses while the DeKalb County Fire Department began working to extinguish the flames … The cause of the fire is unknown and is being investigated by the DeKalb County Fire Department.”

DeKalb County Commissioner Nancy Jester and the DeKalb County Fire Department reported the fire started in the New School of Music.

Dunwoody city council members were also on the scene.

And Councilmember Lynn Deutsch filmed some of the scene of the fire on Facebook Live:

UPDATE April 3: The owner of the New School of Music stated via Facebook that the business was “severely damaged by fire” and will be closed until further notice.

“This is Rick Smith, owner of New School of Music. Sadly, our Dunwoody school was severely damaged today by fire, but we are extremely grateful for the hard work of the firefighters, police, and others for controlling the situation as much as possible AND for making sure no one was hurt! We are working with the landlord of Dunwoody Village Shopping Center to find a temporary space within the shopping center and will have more news in that regard in the days to come.

Meanwhile, I encourage all our patrons to follow us here or on our website: newschoolofmusic.com, for the latest developments.

Our Dunwoody school will be closed for retail and rental services until further notice. However, our music lessons will resume just as quickly as we can secure a temporary space nearby. It’s too soon to know (on this Sunday night), but hopefully our private lessons can resume by next week, if not sooner.
