The Video Expo on Congress Street in Portland stands open for business Tuesday June 5, 2012, a day after a reported electrical fire.

PORTLAND, Maine — The manager of a Portland pornography store said the shop opened on time Tuesday morning, a day after firefighters battled a small fire that had ignited inside the building’s walls.

Phil Payer, manager of Video Expo on Congress Street, told the Bangor Daily News on Tuesday the fire did not affect the business a second day.

The fire reportedly was called in around 5 p.m. Monday. Portland television station WGME first reported on Monday night that electrical equipment used to power the store’s neon lights shorted out and triggered a flare-up inside the walls.
