Fire Breaks Out at Brown Bag Cafe

BrownBagFire   BrownBagSign

Oh nooooo! A little past 10 o'clock on Saturday night there was a structural fire at the Brown Bag Cafe on NE 116th Ave.  Early reports say it was likely a kitchen fire that extended into the attic, which did not sustain major damage. Thank goodness for the fire crews that quickly contained it, however, the restaurant did suffer quite a bit of smoke damage.  When I drove by on Sunday, the front door was boarded up (photo) and there was a burnt smell in the air. The cause of the fire is under investigation and there is currently no estimate as to when the Brown Bag will re-open to serve those family-sized skillets that we have all appreciated at the Kirkland location since 1994.  Big community hugs to the Brown Bag for a quick recovery!
