The fire at 2288 19th St. was reported at 10:34 a.m. and was brought under control at 10:52 a.m., department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The restaurant Little Baobab is listed at that address.

Talmadge said damage from the fire appears to have been limited to the area above the stove.

According to the Chron, Owner Marco Senghor says they are still “cleaning up; he expects (the restaurant) to stay closed for about five or six months, until insurance can be sorted out.”

Potential customers will be redirected “next door to sister venue Bissap Baobab,” reports the Chron.
