Native New Yorker cleaning up after overnight fire

The Maricopa Fire Department was summoned to Maricopa's Native New Yorker restaurant this morning after a fire alarm indicated sprinkler system discharge.

Crews from the intial engine that was dispatched to the scene found moderate smoke within the structure and immediately called for additional assistance and upgraded the call to a working fire. As additional crews arrived on scene, firefighters worked quickly to locate the source of the fire in the kitchen cooking area.

After extinguishing the fire, crews inside the building worked in coordination with roof crews to expel all smoke from the building and limit any additional smoke damage. Personnel remained on scene to remove excess water and secure any potential hazards. The scene was then turned over to the restaurant manager as crews went back in service.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation as the business was closed at the time of the incident. The fire suppression and alert system performed as designed and MFD reported there were no injuries to citizens or fire personnel.

The restaurant remains closed at this time while staff cleans up and repairs the damage. Management hopes to re-open by 5:00 pm today.
