HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - Captain Jeff Pereira with the Hampton Fire Department told WAVY.com Wednesday around 4 p.m. that Hampton firefighters responded to a restaurant fire in the 2700 block of North Armistead Avenue near Butler Farm Road.
When firefighters arrived, they saw smoke coming from the back of the Tide Mill Cafe, in a strip mall building with other businesses on either side of the restaurant.
Pereira said that the blaze was a kitchen fire and that damage was minimal because the hood system worked, activating sprays of powder onto the fire. The fire did not extend to the attic space or other businesses.
No one received injuries, according to Pereira.
Before the cafe can return to normal business, Pereira said that the space will need to be cleaned and the fire suppression system will have to be re-checked and re-charged.
As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, the cause of the fire was unknown.
Further information was not available immediately. Stay with WAVY.com for more info as it becomes available.
