Fire Sprinklers Extinguish Deep Fryer Fire at Smith Bros. Coffee House

Oil in a deep fryer caught fire Monday morning at the Smith Bros. Coffee House in downtown Port Washington, activating fire sprinklers in the eatery. The coffee house is attached to a Duluth Trading Co. clothing store.

The Port Washington Fire Department responded in the early morning of October 21st. Upon arrival, fire crews saw that fire sprinklers extinguished the fire. Crews shut off the water to the sprinkler system and mopped up the water. Both businesses reopened later that week.

No injuries were reported.
