NEWARK, Del. (AP) — Fire officials in Delaware are investigating a fire that damaged a restaurant in Newark early Wednesday.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating after the fire at Miller’s Ale House at Center Pointe Plaza, WDEL-FM reported.

Firefighters were called to the area for an outside fire around 5:30 a.m., but medics and police officers responding from Christiana Hospital could see flames from the front and roof of the structure. It took less than an hour to control the blaze.

The state Fire Marshal’s Office said damage is estimated at $50,000.

The restaurant was closed at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.
