Officials seek cause of fire that damaged popular restaurant

CARLSTADT, N.J. (AP) - Officials are trying to determine the cause of a fire that damaged a popular New Jersey restaurant.

The fire at The Balcony Restaurant and Lounge in Carlstadt started early Sunday morning, not long after a Fourth of July celebration staged there had ended.

Officials say the blaze started in the attic of the lounge and quickly spread. Part of the building's roof eventually collapsed.

Twenty fire departments helped fight the blaze, which was contained around 4:30 a.m.  No injuries were reported.
