THE INVESTIGATION IS UNDERWAY INTO WHAT STARTED THE FIRE SATURDAY MORNING THAT CAUSED MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE FORMER NORMANDY RESTAURANT.

CITY FIRE MARSHALL MARK AESOPH SAYS PART OF THE STRUCTURE HAS NOT BEEN STABILIZED FOR INVESTIGATORS TO GET INTO:


OC…AT THIS POINT. :13

FLAMES WERE SHOOTING THROUGH THE ROOF OF THE BUILDING AT 38TH AND HAMILTON BOULEVARD WHEN FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVED SHORTLY AFTER 6AM SATURDAY.

AESOPH SAYS FIREFIGHTERS SAVED A DANCE STUDIO AND MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY ATTACHED TO THE BUILDING:


OC….WALL IS STABLE. :26

THOSE STUDIOS ARE BOTH OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

THE OLD RESTAURANT WAS BEING REMODELED INTO AN ART GALLERY AND HAD SEVERAL WORKS INSIDE.

MANY OF THE PAINTINGS WERE RESCUED BY FIREFIGHTERS.
