Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire that gutted two businesses in the Bronx overnight Thursday.

The flames broke out at Behan's Pub on Katonah Avenue in Woodlawn just 11 p.m.

The fire quickly spread to the Emerald Pharmacy next door, where a fire wall kept it from damaging any other buildings.

No injuries were reported.

It took nearly two hours to bring the fire under control.

The investigation is ongoing.
