Only minor damage in small roof fire at Pier 500
A small, smoldering fire on the roof of the Pier 500 restaurant, 500 First St., Wednesday night forced the closure of Walnut Street between First and Second streets for more than 30 minutes.
The fire was in an area of the roof where work had been done during the day. The restaurant remained open during the fire-fighting effort. The call was made at 6:29 p.m.
