Fire at Autumn Cafe under investigation

Oneonta Fire Department crews responded to a fire at the Autumn Cafe, 244 Main St., on Tuesday night.

The cause of the blaze, which was in the kitchen area, remained under investigation but isn’t suspicious, Assistant Fire Chief James Maloney said Thursday.

The restaurant was open for business Thursday.

Maloney said a tenant upstairs from the restaurant reported at 10:59 p.m. Tuesday that smoke was in the apartment. Crews broke into the closed restaurant, where sprinklers had kept the fire in check, Maloney said. Additional water from a water-extinguisher and a hose put out the blaze, he said.

Damage from the fire was limited, Maloney said, but water damage resulted in the restaurant and in the business downstairs.
