A blaze caused by a faulty flue of a kitchen stove hit the Zibbibo Restaurant in downtown Palo Alto Saturday, causing local street closures.
Fire trucks blocked parts of Lytton Avenue and side streets. The restaurant is located at 430 Kipling Ave. but extends through to Florence Avenue.
Firefighters had to put out the fire from inside the building and from the rooftop.
A Menlo Park Fire Department crew got to the scene before the Palo Alto Fire Department because it had been transferring equipment between stations when the call was made, and it just kept rolling to the scene, according to Battalion Chief Tim Nigh.
