Pete and Sam’s closed indefinitely after fire

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Investigators are trying to determine the cause of an overnight fire at a popular Memphis restaurant.

Fire crews were called to Pete and Sam’s located in the 3800 block of Park Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

When WREG arrived smoke could be seen from the back of the building.

The fire started in the kitchen area, but the specific cause is still under investigation. No one was hurt.

Pete and Sam’s opened on Park Avenue in 1948.

A phone message at the restaurant said it would be closed for an undetermined amount of time.

An employee of Pete & Sam’s posted on WREG’s Facebook page that the fire caused damage in the kitchen and throughout the restaurant, but that Pete & Sam’s would be back open soon.
