Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Crews extinguished a small fire at Sakura Buffet on Eisenhower Drive Monday, according to the Savannah Fire Department.

Officials said the fire occurred around 5 a.m. in the sushi preparation area, activating the restaurant’s fire suppression sprinklers.

The fire was contained to the sushi buffet area, according to Savannah Fire, though the building sustained smoke damage. The sprinkler system also led to extensive water damage in the building.

Savannah Fire officials said this marks the department’s first fire of the holiday season. Whenever a fire occurs between Nov. 15 and Jan. 2, the department will swap out one of the wreath’s green light bulbs for a red one.

“The public can help keep the wreath green by practicing fire safety at work and home during Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and into the New Year,” the department stated.
