City crews put out fire on roof of Pazo; no injuries

Firefighters have extinguished a blaze on the roof of Pazo, a Mediterranean restaurant in the 1400 block of Aliceanna St. in Baltimore.

The blaze started at 11 a.m. Tuesday and was under control by 12:30 p.m., said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a Fire Department spokesman. While the blaze officially was only one alarm, Cartwright said the department called for additional units, resulting in about 40 firefighters at the scene. He said it took about an hour to extinguish.

There were no injuries, he said. The cause and damage estimate have not yet been released.

The fire did not spread to the restaurant space and was contained to the kitchen, which mostly suffered water damage, said restaurant spokeswoman Allison Parker-Abromitis.

She said Pazo has a clean-up crew on site and hopes to reopen Friday.
