A storeroom in the EXPO Market, an array of five restaurants located at the Market Arcade complex at 617 Main St., suffered minor damage Sunday after a single-alarm fire broke out shortly before 9 a.m.
The manager for Mercato and the catering chef for Osteria were on the premises and notified the Buffalo Fire Department after first hearing the fire alarm and then seeing the fire developing. The fire appeared to be extinguished a short time after the Fire Department arrived.
Buffalo Fire Department Division Chief Michael Tubeldyke estimated damage at around $60,000.
EXPO is expected to open as scheduled on Monday.
