An early morning fire caused $350,000 in damage to Cafe Belo in Allston, officials said.
The two-alarm fire at 181 Brighton Ave. started around 4 a.m. in the kitchen ceiling, Boston Fire Department spokesperson Steve MacDonald said. It took firefighters about 4 hours to put out the blaze at the one-story building.
MacDonald said there were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Firefighters responded to another incident later this morning that left City Hall temporarily without power. They cut power to an electrical vault at 28 State St. after smoldering cables set off an alarm around 5 a.m., MacDonald said.
The building is adjacent to City Hall, and they share a garage. The garage sustained smoke damage, MacDonald said, but the fire has been extinguished and power has been restored to City Hall.
