Popular Italian market cleaning up after fire

- Mazzaro's Italian Market in St. Petersburg is cleaning up after a fire broke out at one for their warehouses shortly after midnight on Saturday.

St. Pete Fire Rescue says a police officer in the area saw smoke and called to report the fire.  Crews were able to get it under control within 30 minutes. 

The cause of the fire is unknown at this point, but damage is estimated between $75,000 and $100,000.

No one was injured, but Mazzaro's had to close for the weekend to clean up the mess left behind.  The family business posted on Facebook, thanking the public for their understanding.  They say they are working as quickly as they can to reopen their doors, which they expect to do as soon as Monday.
