NEW ROADS -- A fire late Saturday damaged Steve's Ray Pizza on Hospital Road, but was contained before it could spread to nearby stores and offices in the business complex, New Roads Fire Chief Gregory Johnson said.
Firefighters were called out at 10:42 p.m. and when they arrived seven minutes minutes later, fire was coming out of the rear of the cement-block building, Johnson said.
Eight units from the New Roads and District 3 departments had the blaze under control within 15 minutes, he said.
The restaurant had been closed for the night, Johnson said, adding that there were no injuries.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, he said.
