    Current Situation

    (Recent updates are posted at the top of the Current Situation)

    The City of Riverside Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from a restaurant at the Thai Bay Cafe. Upon arrival we found heavy smoke coming from the gable vents and the eves in the attic. Crews made entry into the structure and was confronted with zero visibility smoke conditions. They found a working fire in the kitchen. An aggressive fire attack was initiated, however the fire and heat damaged everything inside the structure. 

    The fire investigation revealed the fire possibly started due to faulty electrical in the kitchen.

    Riverside County Health was requested to contact the owner regarding the incident during regular business hours tomorrow.
