Fire Damages Sweet Mango

There was a fire at Sweet Mango Cafe sometime between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. this morning (8/4/12). While I don’t have any details about how extensive the fire was or how long it will take to repair it, it appears that it was another kitchen fire. I’ll provide more details as I get them.

Readers may recall that there was also a fire at Sweet Mango on December 4, 2010. That fire was also in the kitchen area and caused  approximately $100,000 in damages.

Below are some photographs from this morning.
