Damage to a Main Street restaurant is estimated at $100,000 following an early morning fire on Tuesday.

Fire crews rushed to Boogies Diner on Main Street near Redwood Avenue shortly after 4 a.m.

The rooftop fire began in the restaurant’s electronic sign and quickly spread to the building. Damage to the interior is minimal and staff say they hope to reopen as early as Wednesday.

No one was inside at the time and there were no reported injuries.
