A fire damaged Blacksauce Kitchen’s storefront in Remington early Friday morning.

The Baltimore Fire Department first responded to a call shortly after midnight for the fire at 401 W. 29th St., where Blacksauce Kitchen serves customers on Thursdays. The fire reignited several hours later, and the fire department returned following another call at 4:13 a.m.*

There were no injuries, and the cause is under investigation, according to the Baltimore Fire Department. The fire was under control by 5 a.m., said Blair Skinner, a spokeswoman for the department. She was unable to provide details on the extent of the damage.

A video posted to YouTube appeared to show flames and smoke coming from the restaurant.

Known for its biscuits and Southern-style comfort food, Blacksauce Kitchen set up shop about a year ago at the Remington storefront after getting its start at farmers’ markets.

The restaurant also offers catering and still appears at markets — including the 32nd St. Farmers’ Market in Waverly on Saturdays year-round, and the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar on Sundays from April through December.

Blacksauce Kitchen owners Damian Mosley and Vesnier Lugo could not immediately be reached for comment Friday morning.

*Update: This story has been updated to include information about the original fire just after midnight and its reignition several hours later.

Blacksauce Kitchen, which built its reputation dishing out biscuits at farmers' markets, will open its permanent restaurant in Remington on Thursday.
