TUCSON, Ariz. -- A tattoo parlor in Tucson that was intentionally set on fire four years ago has burned again and authorities say it's also an arson case.

Multiple 911 calls came into the emergency dispatch center around 5:30 a.m. Friday about smoke and flames coming from the K42 Tattoo shop.

Tucson Fire Department officials say it took 12 units and 28 firefighters about 24 minutes to extinguish the blaze.

The say the fire was intentionally started inside the building and caused an estimated $300,000 in damage.

The parlor also burned just weeks after it opened in November 2008, causing an estimated $50,000 in damage to the contents of the shop.
