A new and “suspicious” fire was reported early Thursday in the same building as Yakitori Sushi House, the restaurant on Tudor Road that’s already the subject of an arson investigation, authorities say. The fire started at Noodle World, two businesses over from Yakitori Sushi House. A liquor store sits between the two.
The Anchorage Fire Department received a call at 6:08 a.m. Thursday about “fire and smoke” coming from Noodle World, according to Assistant Chief Erich Scheunemann. Units that arrived at the location within four minutes had what Scheunemann called a “minor fire” knocked down by 6:15.
A front window at Noodle World was shattered.
Owner Elizabeth Yuk, at the fire scene Thursday morning, said her restaurant was already closed temporarily because of smoke damage from the Yakitori fire. Now she doesn’t know when she will reopen.
