Fire Breaks Out at Main Line White Dog Cafe

Firefighters responded to a blaze at a popular Main Line restaurant Monday afternoon, causing traffic troubles on a busy road.

The fire broke out around 1:30 p.m. in a duct in the kitchen at the White Dog Café along West Lancaster Avenue in Wayne, cafe spokeswoman Jaimi Blackburn told NBC10.

No one was hurt, Delaware County dispatchers said.

Firefighters could be seen going in and out of the building and on the roof but there were no visible signs of flames. Some debris was thrown onto the ground on one side of the building.

There was some water damage to the kitchen but there was no physical damage to the restaurant, Blackburn said.

The restaurant is connected to a handful of other businesses in the same complex. It will be temporarily closed while the damage is clean up. Blackburn vowed to reopen soon.

Fire trucks blocked part of busy Lancaster Avenue for more than an hour.

The Wayne location opened in 2010. There are also a White Dog Café in Haverford and the original location in University City. The restaurant planned to reach out to customers with reservations for the Wayne to offer them a visit to the Haverford location instead.
