WESTFIELD, NJ - A small electrical fire started at Rock 'n' Joe's on Prospect Street around noon on Saturday.
According to Deputy Chief Anthony Tiller, the fire was caused by an electrical shortage in wires in the ceiling, sending smoke into the neighboring businesses on both sides.
“It created a smoke condition," Tiller said. "Once we located the fire, we ripped down some sheetrock and got to it right away.”
No employees were harmed, but Rock 'n' Joe's is currently closed. An employee of the business said it is unclear when they will reopen.
Tim Boyle, owner of 16 Prospect next door, said his restaurant will be closed for lunch but will reopen for dinner.
