IMG_0388Original brief: 10:15 a.m. The Orange Fire Department is on scene of a structure fire at 106 Boston Post Road (Staples/Abate’s Pizza).

West Haven is en route.

UPDATE: Fire Marshal Tim Smith said the fire started in the kitchen of Abate’s Pizza and made its way up to the exhaust and ceiling tiles to the roof.

There is a fair amount of fire damage to Abate’s and “some” smoke damage to other businesses but nothing major.

Town building officials have closed the restaurant until repairs are made and the building is re-inspected.

Smith said the cause of the fire is still undetermined.
