Maverick Restaurant Damaged, Residents Evacuated in Early-Morning Fire

Not so appetizing
A fire broke out this morning, ruining a popular upscale Mission District restaurant and forcing residents living above to flee.

According to press reports, the fire started at about 8:15 a.m. in the kitchen at Maverick, located at 3316 17th Street, between Mission and Hoff streets. The blaze was under control within 30 minutes, and fortunately, nobody was hurt.

According to the Chron, the fire started in an oven inside the restaurant, but how the fire started is not yet clear. Michael Pierce, who owns the restaurant, arrived as firefighters were putting out the blaze.

"We're definitely going to be closed for quite a while," Pierce told the Chron.

In other words, consider your reservations canceled.
