'Posh Bagel' fire closes Menlo's Santa Cruz Ave.

5:30 p.m. attic fire results in water damage to adjacent biusinesses

A two-alarm fire erupted in the Posh Bagel shop in downtown Menlo Park late Wednesday afternoon (June 16), forcing closure of one of the main streets in the downtown commercial area.

Menlo Park Fire Protection District Chief Harold Schapelhouman said the fire was reported at about 5:30 p.m. the shop, 869 Santa Cruz Ave.

The blaze apparently started in the attic of the structure, he said. Battling the fire caused water damage to adjacent businesses at the single-story building, including a cafe and bookstore, he added.

Santa Cruz Avenue remained closed until after 6 while firefighters battled the blaze, he said.

No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
