Power Outage Results in Fire at Young Chow

A small fire was reported around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon at Young Chow, the Chinese restaurant located in the Commons.

Dave, the Young Chow manager on duty at the time, who would not give his last name, said the fire began when a candle, lit because the restaurant was without power, fell off the service counter, igniting a piece of paper on the floor.

University Police officials could not be reached for comment Sunday.

The Young Chow manager said that after fire personnel shut off the sprinkler system and University Police surveyed the scene, the restaurant closed for the day around 2:30 p.m.

No damage was reported and the restaurant opened Saturday morning for business as usual.
