Just after midnight, callers reported a heavy smoke condition on Montague St. between Clinton St. & Henry St. to the Fire Department. Upon going to the rooftops, firefighters saw flames in the rear of 142 Montague St., home of Taze Restaurant.
The fire was reportedly in the ductwork, with some slight extension to the upper floors, and was knocked down in about 40 minutes.
The event brought back memories of another fire in the building on March 26, 2007.
No injuries were reported, and unlike last year’s incident, this one is not considered suspicious.
