Two alarms were struck this morning at 427 Woodburn Drive, at a sushi restaurant at Cameron Village. Engine 5 arrived with smoke coming from the roof of the one-story brick commercial building and shopping center with 25,924 square-feet. Built in 1949, it includes a full basement. Crews entered the building, to locate the seat of the fire. Dispatched at 2:11 a.m., a second alarm was requested about 2:21 a.m. Staging was set as a parking lot across the street. Heavy smoke was reportedly pouring from the building by this time. Crews worked to also gain additional access and ventilation the building. The fire was found in the kitchen area, and quickly contained. The fire was controlled at 2:41 a.m. All second alarm companies were returned to service around that time. The cause was determined as accidental. Half of the building was damaged.
