A fire that began in the ductwork at Boston restaurant Pasta Beach caused approximately $350,000 in damages, according to a tweet by the Boston Fire Department. The fire began around 3:30 p.m. on Monday, September 23, and forced the evacuation of the first and second floors at 30 Rowes Wharf.

The fire was knocked down by 5:11 p.m., according to another tweet by the Boston Fire Department.

One firefighter was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. The Boston Fire Department ordered two alarms in order to rotate companies.

Eater has attempted to reach Pasta Beach for comment; however, the restaurant’s phone line is not currently working, so the extent of the damage is unclear, as is a timeline for repairs and reopening. This post will be updated as new information becomes available.

Pasta Beach is a mini-chain, with two Rhode Island locations (Newport and Providence) in addition to the damaged Boston space. It serves classic Italian pasta dishes such as penne all’Arrabbiata and rigatoni all’Amatriciana, and at least a couple local chefs count its pizza among their local favorites.
