Fire caused significant damage to a restaurant in Milford Sunday night.
Firefighters responded to Flames Mediterranean & American Grill at 12 Daniel St. after an employee of a neighboring restaurant called 911 just before 9 p.m. because some smelled smoke in the area, according to Milford Fire Rescue.
Firefighters forced their way in through the front doors and got the fire under control in 15 minutes, but the restaurant sustained extensive heat and smoke damage.
The Milford fire marshal’s division is investigating the cause of the fire.
The fire did not affect an adjacent real estate office or barber shop.
