The fire was extinguished around noon, according to reports. Two minor injuries were reported. The jewelry store was expected to reopen Friday.

The iconic store, a cultural landmark with a storied history, reopened in April with a multi-day star-studded celebration, following a three-year renovation led by celebrated architect, Peter Marino with a three-story glass roof addition by OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture).

The owner of Tiffany, French luxury holdings company, LVMH wouldn’t reveal the cost of the renovation, but estimates range from a minimum of $250 million to $500 million.
