Fire damages India House restaurant
REGINA -- Regina Fire and Protective Services were on the scene of a fire at India House restaurant on Saturday morning.
The deputy fire chief said they received the call around 11 a.m. and crews arrived at the restaurant on Albert St. three minutes later.
No injuries were reported and firefighters got the situation under control within 30 minutes.
The owner of India House said the damage is mostly cosmetic, and work to fix the inside of the building is already underway.
“From the looks of it, the majority of it is a good clean up,” said co-owner Joshua Bagchi.
The majority of the interior damage is in the kitchen, where there was flooding from a burst pipe. There was also some smoke damage, and damage to the roof.
“They already got most of the water cleaned up,” Bagchi said. “Our equipment looks like it’s still good and functioning.”
Bagchi said they’re not sure exactly how long the clean up will take, but they are hoping to open again in a few weeks.
The deputy chief said some of the ceiling was torn down during their efforts to extinguish the fire.
In a Facebook post, India House said the restaurant is closed for the time being.
