Fire at Andersonville Noodle Zone, Clark Street Closed

noodle zone fireClark street at Rasher is closed off to traffic as several ambulances and fire trucks respond to a fire. The fire is located in the basement working area of Noodle Zone at 5427 N. Clark Street.

There are no reports of injuries and the fire seems contained, but there is no word on when Clark street will be reopened to traffic. Cars and buses are stuck in heavy traffic so it is suggested the area be avoided if driving your vehicle.

This is the latest trouble for the restaurant after failing city inspection on April 17, 2014. On that inspection the city worker observed accumulated grease/food build up on floor under fryers which could lead to hazardous conditions. The problem was considered risk 1 (high). Also observed were vent covers on ceiling and cover for the wall air condition with dust build-up. Whether this could have led to today’s fire is still unclear.
