Fire at Hook in Georgetown: Tackle Box, Saloun Damaged [UPDATED]

WJLA-TV reports that firefighters have squelched a two-alarm fire at Hook restaurant in Georgetown: "There were no injures reported in the blaze, which was contained within about 15 minutes. The Tackle Box and Saloun, two nearby establishments, suffered water and smoke damage. M Street is shut down for about four blocks in the area."

D.C. Fire & EMS adds via Twitter: "BTW – Georgetown Cupcakes & most other neighbors ok."

A Y&H correspondent is headed to the scene. Expect a statement from a rep  for both Hook and Tackle Box momentarily.

UPDATE: A rep for Hook owner Jonathan Umbel says the fire started outside the restaurant in the back, not inside the kitchen, contrary to prior reports. No one is sure what started the blaze. The kitchen suffered some "minor smoke damage." Both Hook and Tackle Box will be closed for the rest of the day. "We are very happy that no patrons or staff members were hurt," she says.
