REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) – No injuries were reported after a two-alarm fire broke out at a Redwood City bar early Monday morning, according to a deputy fire chief.
The blaze began around 4:30 a.m. at a structure attached to the rear of Sodini’s, a bar located in a one-story strip mall at 727 El Camino Real, fire officials said.
The fire got into the interior of the business, but remained mostly contained to the back of the building, which is where fire officials believe the fire started.
Several businesses are immediately adjacent to Sodini’s, but the fire remained within the building of origin.
One residential building was briefly evacuated but residents have since been allowed to return, Deputy Fire Chief Dave Pucci said.
El Camino Real was briefly shut down in both directions between Broadway and Brewster Avenue at around 5 a.m.
Firefighters were able to move their operation to the back of the building in an alleyway just in time for the morning commute and El Camino Real reopened around 7 a.m., according to Pucci.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
