At approximately 2:40 Sunday afternoon San Pedro police received a call from neighbors of Micky's Place reporting flames and smoke coming from the establishment. The restaurant, located on the south end of Pescador Drive in downtown San Pedro, was closed and the owner was across the street at another business at the time of the fire.
The police contacted the SP Fire Department and with their quick response and assistance from neighbors the fire was contained and extinguished in quick time. According to the restaurant owner it is believed that the fire was caused by a deep-fat fryer that had been left on.
Further information regarding damages, along with photos, will be posted on Monday. There were no injuries reported at this time.
