Health Department Says: fire and “gross unsanitary conditions”

Business Says: All smoke and hardly any fire. The oil-and-gas fire broke out around 4 p.m. on April 26, says manager Shing Huang, because an employee forgot to turn off the gas in the kitchen. The fire charred a small part of the kitchen, but mostly it just “made smoke everywhere.” The city shut it down for five days to let it air out. “Just the smoke made the people scared, and they called the fire department,” he says. “That’s all. Nothing happened.”
