UPDATED: Timeless Authentic Garments (tag) in Loop On Fire

Timeless Authentic Garments (tag), a used clothing store in the Delmar Loop, caught fire this afternoon. No one was injured, but smoke continues to pour out of the store's open door and hover over the street.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, though word is it started in the back room and may have something to do with the fact that the store is flanked by two restaurants with gas grills, Chipotle and Noodles and Company, and that it contained plenty of vintage clothing made from polyester and other flammables.

In 2008, the year it opened, Riverfront Times chose the store as Best Place to Buy Used Clothing.
