A fire outside a popular San Leandro sports bar early Saturday morning damaged only the facade, Alameda County fire officials said.
The single-alarm blaze at Ricky’s Sports Theatre & Grill was reported just after 1 a.m. and started near an outside ice machine closet, Alameda County fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said.
No injuries were reported in the blaze. The fire extended up the wall and into an overhead facade, Knowles said, but crews stopped it from spreading inside the restaurant, located in the 15000 block of Hesperian Boulevard.
The blaze took about 15 minutes to extinguish.
A Twitter post by Ricky’s bar said the owners were working to make sure the popular eatery and bar could be open for events this afternoon and evening.
“Looks like damage is isolated and most importantly, everyone is OK. Not sure if we can open today… waiting for word on that,” according to the post.
