in serious condition. A vacant restaurant on South Beretania was gutted today after an early morning fire. Fire crews responded to the two-alarm fire around 8 A-M at the former Bella Mia Pizzeria. Crews brought the fire under control about ten minutes later. Heavy smoke coming from the single story structure alerted residents to the fire. 8:20 I GOT UP AND I SMELLED SMOKE AT MY APARTMENT. THAT'S HOW BAD THE SMOKE TRAVELED ALL THE WAY TO KING STREET WHERE THE APARTMENTS AT. SO WHAT I DID WAS TRYING TO LOCATE WHERE THE SMOKE WAS COMING FROM SO I CALLED THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 8:31 South Beretania was closed while crews were on scene. All lanes were reopened around 9:30 A-M. An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
