A popular Caribbean eatery in Brockton is temporarily closed following a kitchen fire.
The call came in to the fire department at approximately 11:40 a.m. on Sunday, just as Jeano’s Restaurant at 769 Main St. was preparing to open.
Deputy Fire Chief Michael Williams told WATD a woman in the rear parking lot accidentally backed her car into the building, rupturing a gas line and sparking a small kitchen fire.
The blaze was quickly extinguished, but there’s extensive damage because crews had to tear down a wall to make sure the fire hadn’t spread.
Williams said the restaurant could be closed a few days or longer.
No one was injured.
