A fire at Scaletta at 50 West 77th street Sunday afternoon drew a large FDNY response and resulted in the restaurant being shuttered temporarily. A hostess at the restaurant told our correspondent Carol Tannenhauser that it was a “small fire” that started in the kitchen and the restaurant will be closed “for the next few days.”
The fire was called in at 1:42 p.m and drew a response of 78 firefighters, who had it under control at 2:56, according to an FDNY spokesman.
