Fire damages restaurant on Capitol Hill

A Capitol Hill restaurant sustained major damage in an overnight fire.

Firefighters were called to Galerias Gourmet Mexican Restaurant, 611 Broadway Ave E., at 2:56 a.m. for the blaze, said Seattle fire spokesman Kyle Moore. When fire crews arrived at the closed business they saw flames shooting from the roof, Moore said.

The fire was out in about 40 minutes, Moore said. Firefighters are still investigating a cause of the blaze; a damage estimate has not been released.

A firefighter suffered a minor knee injury in the fire, Moore said.
