Portion of Columbia Pike Shut Down Following Business Fire

Traffic on eastbound Columbia Pike remains shut down between Walter Reed Drive and South Cleveland Street following a business fire.

At about 2:30 p.m., the Arlington County Fire Department responded to a call at a carry-out restaurant in the 2500 block of Columbia Pike.

The fire has been extinguished. Crews are checking the building to make sure it did not spread to adjacent businesses before the fire marshal's office begins its investigation into the cause, Capt. Gregg Karl said.

The restaurant was open when the fire broke out, but no injuries have been reported, Karl said.

Westbound traffic on Columbia Pike is unaffected, Karl said.
