Lunch time diners at the Stardust restaurant had their meals interrupted shortly after 1:15 today, as Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue personnel attended to a small fire in the rear area of the Third Avenue West restaurant.
Upon their arrival smoke was visible from the rear and Firefighters made quick work of the call, which was handled through the use of extinguishers, with no need to roll out fire hose along the 600 block of the downtown street corridor.
Traffic however, was re-routed around the location for roughly 45 minutes while they took care of the situation.
A number of bystanders lined the sidewalks and rear of the restaurant by Coast Community College to watch as the fire department went about its work.
By 2 PM fire personnel were already using industrial fans to dissipate any lingeing smoke that may still be found in the restaurant.
