Fire at Duluth restaurant does $75K worth of damage

The cause is under investigation.

A fire did $75,000 worth of damage to a restaurant in Duluth's Lincoln Park area early Thursday. 

The Duluth Fire Department responded to Spoon's Bar and Grill at 2113 W Superior St. at 2:27 a.m. to find flames coming from the rear of the building through a ventilation duct, a news release says. They could also see flames through a glass block window. 

"Firefighters breached the window and extinguished most of the flames from the exterior," the department said. 

Crews then forced the doors open and went inside to finish extinguishing the blaze. 

No one was found inside the building and no one was injured, with the fire department noting the fire was limited to the kitchen area. 

Damages are estimated at $75,000 for building contents, light structural and smoke damage. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
