VERONA, N.Y - The Spaghetti Factory in Verona Beach will be closed until further notice after an early morning kitchen fire on Sunday.

Fire Crews were called to the scene just at around 5 Sunday morning after a firefighter driving by saw flames coming from the roof of the building.

When fire crews arrived, they quickly moved inside to extinguish the fire, containing the fire to just the kitchen, where it started.

Fire officials say the damage inside is minimal and contained to the kitchen and the attic of the restaurant.

No one was at the restaurant at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

The insurance company for the restaurant was called in to assess the damage so it can be repaired.

From the Spaghetti Factory's Facebook page:

"We regretfully will not be open today, or in the immediate future. Damage contained to small portion of the kitchen, storage space, and restroom. To the more than 450 people we had hoped to share today with, our sincerest apologies as we work to reopen. as quickly as possible. We are trying to contact everyone and will do the same when we have a date set to reopen."

"It is times like these that you truly understand the value of volunteer fire departments and the brave men and women who devote themselves to helping their neighbors. Thanks to Austin Brown for being at the right place at the right time, and thank you to all the fire departments that responded and worked quickly, and with great care to save us. We are truly grateful today, and will be reopening as soon as possible thanks to the efforts of what seemed to be 100 people this morning.
