An overnight fire has temporarily closed down all business operations and famed Hype Park eatery Arthur’s Cafe.

Cincinnati Fire Department crew were called onto the scene of the busy restaurant just a few short hours ago on Edwards Road at about 3:30AM. Within the hour, the fire had been contained and extinguished.

Still under investigation, the fire thankfully did not create any injuries and was said to be caused by the heating system located above the kitchen according to a state from firefighter George Johnson.

Arthur’s Cafe will be closed for the day as plans for repairs get underway. We’ll keep you posted on the details as they become available.
