The scene on Thursday in Highland Village.

The Kate Spade boutique in Highland Village caught fire on Thursday afternoon less than a year after it opened.

It appears the giant neon sign in the shape of a bow above the doorway and front facade was the source of the blaze, which was put out in minutes by the Houston Fire Department. According to KTRK, 10 people were inside the store at the time the fire broke out, but they were all evacuated safely and no injuries were reported. The blaze was extinguished without damaging neighboring storefronts.

A Kate Spade employee says there's currently no timeframe for when the boutique will reopen, but shoppers looking for the brand's beloved handbags, shoes, and other preppy necessities can shop the Galleria location.
