An award-winning vegetarian restaurant could be closed for up to a fortnight after a fire broke out in its kitchen.
Firefighters spent about three hours battling a fire atTerre a Terre in East Street, Brighton, from 6am yesterday.
The emergency call was made by two cleaners who spotted the blaze in the kitchen and their quick thinking in closing the kitchen doors prevented the blaze from spreading further.
Management at the restaurant say they are taking it day by day but will not be taking bookings for the next seven days.
A statement on the restaurant's website said: "Thankfully nobody is hurt. Upstairs remains untouched. We are assessing the situation and will open again as soon as possible.
"Thank you for your support and understanding."
