Fire department responds to early morning fire at Spirits

The Fredericksburg Fire Department responded to a fire early this morning at Spirits Restaurant, at 816 Caroline Street.

The fire department responded to the call at about 1 a.m.

The fire was located on the second floor porch area under the tin roof covering.

The occupants used a portable fire extinguisher before the fire department arrived.

A hose line was used to extinguish the fire and crews spent time opening up the roof area with saws and hooks to make sure the fire didn’t spread.

There were no injuries reported.

The fire marshal’s office of the fire department is conducting an investigation into the incident but a cause has not determined.
