Firefighters from 11 departments responded to a fire that broke out at a Mequon Italian restaurant Friday afternoon. The blaze at Zarletti Mequon, 1515 W. Mequon Road, was reported shortly after 2 p.m., Mequon Fire Battalion Chief Brandon Boettcher said. The fire started on the outside of the building and had some extension inside, but crews were able to limit the damage to the exterior of the building and an unoccupied portion of the attic, Boettcher said. No one was injured. The cause of the fire hasn't been determined, Boettcher said. Mequon received help from 10 other fire departments: Thiensville, Grafton, North Shore, Milwaukee, Cedarburg, Saukville, Menomonee Falls, Germantown, Port Washington and Jackson. The restaurant normally opens at 4 p.m., according to its website, so it would not have been open to customers at the time the fire started.
