Connecticut State Police Fire Marshals are currently investigating the cause of the fire.
Ledgelight Health Department has been out and all food must be disposed.
The fire was contained to the kitchen, however there was heavy smoke damage throughout the building.
In speaking with the restaurant owner, Christo, he really hasn't begun to process what happened. Until he knows the cause and can start working with the insurance company, he really can't wrap his head around everything.
