Poudre Fire Authority is investigating a kitchen fire in a restaurant in Old Town Fort Collins. Suehiro Japanese Restaurant at 223 Linden Street suffered fire damage to the rear of the building. The Entire building suffered some smoke damage.

The fire started at around 9:25 on Sunday Morning. Firefighters found a fire in multiple walls and between floors of the building. Holes were cut in floors and walls to get access to the fire.  PFA firefighters were able to find and extinguish all hidden fire. Business offices and a next-door building were threatened, however crews kept the fire from getting to them.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the blaze.  The restaurant is expected to be closed for a couple months.
