On Thursday, June 22 at 8:19 pm Mountain View Communications received a 911 call reporting flames and smoke from Don Giovanni Restaurant at 235 Castro Street in downtown Mountain View.

Firefighters discovered a cooking fire that had occurred in the hood and duct system of the kitchen stove. The fire was quickly extinguished by Mountain View Fire. No injuries were reported.

The fire cause is under investigation but appears to be accidental.
