Cochran Hose Co. firefighters responded early Tuesday to B Gourmet, an organic eatery and grocery in Sewickley, after smoke filled the store.
Fire Chief Jeff Neff said the store at 428 Beaver St. was unoccupied at 4:30 a.m. when firefighters were called to the building. When they arrived, Neff said the whole first floor was filled with smoke.
Water boiled off a pot left simmering overnight on the stove, resulting in the smoke. Neff said they were able to get the pot off the stove and ventilate the store. There was no major damage and no one was injured, he said.
The store is open and employees said the incident won't affect Thanksgiving orders, which are still being taken.
