UPDATE: Berlin Restaurant Fire Ruled Accidental

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - A Thursday morning fire at a local restaurant has been ruled accidental. The Worcester County Fire Marshal's Office says the fire started around 11:30 AM at Siculi Italian Restaurant on North Main Street, in Berlin.

Officials say initially, Berlin and Showell Volunteer Fire Companies responded to the blaze, followed by Ocean Pines, Bishopville, Newark, and Ocean City, once it was determined the flames were in the ventilation system, extending into the interior of the restaurant.

According to the report, the restaurant was open at the time of the fire, but all of the occupants were able to escape without any injuries. Fire crews were apparently able to quickly put out the flames, and contain them to the ventilation system for a wood burning pizza oven. Officials say fire units stayed on scene for two hours, suppressing the fire.

Siculi is expected to stay closed until clean up, and repairs are finished. The Fire Marshal's Office has ruled to blaze as accidental, caused by a fire in the wood burning pizza oven's ventilation system which extended to surrounding combustibles.
