Fire at Branch & Vine

Everyone is OK.

UPDATE: Branch & Vine is now open again. The latest restaurant fire (and isn't it awful to have to say that?) broke out last night at Branch & Vine, the former Olio, at 2001 1/2 W. Main St. According to owner Matt Fraker, it was a small kitchen fire. "Everyone is safe, thanks to quick action from our staff and local fire department," he posted on Facebook. The spot is closed for repairs. "[We] hope to reopen SOON!" he said in an email.

Fraker and partner Jason Ferrell took over the gourmet takeout and eat-in restaurant from original owner Jason Savedoff in 2015 and changed the name, renovated the interior and revamped the menu earlier this year.
