Manzana Rotisserie Grill will open Saturday after closing for two weeks to repair damage from an Aug. 12 fire.

Police and fire officials are still investigating the cause of the single-alarm blaze, which forced the evacuation of about 300 people from the restaurant during dinner.

Patrons were evacuated after cooks at the restaurant, located in Lake View Village on State Street, discovered smoke coming from an upstairs stock room. No one was injured.

The fire caused about $10,000 in structural damage to the building and an estimated $25,000 in stock and property damage, much of it water damage from sprinklers and fire hoses. Water also flooded an electrical panel, forcing power to the building to be shut down. Phone lines were also damaged.

Matt Corbin, vice president of marketing for Pacific Coast Restaurants, said most of the damage was confined to the eaves of the building above the restaurant's kitchen.

He said the restaurant would not open for its usual breakfast service on Saturday but would resume normal operations for lunch at 11 a.m.

Patrons with questions are asked to call the police at 503-675-3322.
