Thermal Cameras were used by the fire department to determine the cause of the fire. It appears to have started from a smoldering towel thrown in a hamper used to collect dirty towels and aprons.
Thankfully, no one was inside, but there was enough smoke damage to put the local coffee shop out of business for a little while.
“Urban Standard will likely be closed today, and the health department will have to do an inspection before it reopens.”
