D.C Restaurant Fire Causes $1M in Damages

October 22, 2008

A Washington, D.C. fire official says a two-alarm fire at a Georgetown restaurant caused about $1 million in damage, but the cause is still under investigation.

Spokesman Alan Etter says investigators believe the fire started around 5:15 a.m. Monday in the basement kitchen of Ristorante Piccolo, an Italian eatery in the 1000 block of 31st Street northwest. But Etter says investigators are still looking into what caused the fire.

About 110 firefighters were called to the scene to combat the flames. No injuries have been reported.
