218 Grille 1

Fire investigators are looking for the cause of a two-alarm blaze that damaged a three-story commercial building on Wilmington's Market Street.

The initial call on Monday afternoon, April 15, 2019, was for a vehicle fire in the area of 2nd and Market streets.

The first arriving engine company found smoke on all three floors of the stand-alone structure, which houses the 218 Grille, and upgraded the incident.

The fire eventually went to two alarms, bringing crews from volunteer fire companies in New Castle County into the scene and to cover city stations.

The blaze was under control in about an hour and there were no injuries reported.
