A lunchtime fire broke out in the building that houses Kokkari about an hour ago. An initial report from SF Weekly states that neither diners in the restaurant nor the cooks in the kitchen knew that anything was wrong until fire trucks appeared on the scene, and it’s unclear if this was some kind of chimney fire or what. Smoke was visible outside the building. About 150 people were cleared out of the restaurant and the fire was extinguished within 30 minutes. Investigators are still looking into the cause. No word if Nancy Pelosi or Willie Brown were there at the time, but if he was, we’re sure he’ll blog about it. [SF Weekly] Update: The Scoop confirms there was no damage to the restaurant itself, and it has reopened for business.
