Second fire in two weeks hits Raleigh restaurant

Posted July 3, 2009

— Miami Subs, at 3701 New Bern Ave., will be closed for at least a day after the second fire there in two weeks, Raleigh fire officials said.

Battalion Chief G.R. Bagwell said the fire was contained to the roof, where it started around midnight. Only some smoke got into the building.

Bagwell said the precise cause of the two fires hasn't been determined, but it appears to be related to fluorescent lighting surrounding the roof.

Miami Subs will be closed until health inspectors give it the OK to re-open.
