Kitchen Fire at Cafe Asia in Rosslyn

(Updated at 11:40 a.m.) Firefighters are on the scene of a kitchen fire at Cafe Asia restaurant (1550 Wilson Blvd) in Rosslyn.

The fire, which reportedly started in an oven, was quickly extinguished. Nonetheless, the office building above Cafe Asia was evacuated as a precaution, sending scores of workers out onto the sidewalk.

Firefighters have started to pack up their gear and leave while light, hazy smoke is ventilated from the restaurant.

No word yet on whether the restaurant will have to close for an extended period of time. Normally, a health inspector must give the okay for a restaurant to reopen after a fire.
