Crews Chase Fire Into Attic of High-End Lafayette Restaurant

Fire crews were working late Tuesday evening to extinguish a stubborn kitchen fire in a high-end restaurant in Lafayette, county fire officials said.

As of 8:08 p.m., the main fire at Postino Restaurant at 3565 Mt. Diablo Blvd. had been contained. But the flames spread into the attic, which has a lot of "nooks

and crannies" making it more difficult to put out the blaze, Steve Hill, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokesman, said.

No one has been injured, Hill said. The fire started in the kitchen and was reported at 6:49 p.m.

Mt. Diablo Boulevard is closed between Lafayette Circle and Oak Hill Road and police are asking people to avoid the area.
