A Batesville restaurant is closed today after suffering water damage.

Update (2:00 p.m.)

Batesville Fire Chief Todd Schutte says the cause of a fire at RomWeber Flats was caused by an individual cooking on the stove.

The property’s sprinkler system contained the fire to the one apartment. It did result in some water damage to nine apartment homes and the Big Four Café. It delayed restaurant operations by three hours on Wednesday.

“There were no injuries as a result of the fire and all residents effected have been taken care of,” according to Teri Hedemark, Area Manager forFlaherty and Collins, the property management company.

“The Red Cross assisted in placing three families in hotels and a restoration company arrived shortly after the incident to begin repairs. We appreciated the quick response time from Emergency Services.”

Update (8:30 a.m.)

Owner Adam Israel says the Big Four Café will now reopen today at 10 a.m.

First Report (7:54 a.m.)
