Just after 8 a.m. Friday, the Napa City Fire Department and the ladder truck from CalFire in Yountville responded to a report of a fire in the downtown Napa building still known to many Napans as Fagiani's at 813 Main St., now home to The Thomas restaurant and Fagiani's at The Thomas bar.
Firefighters found a pot of oil on fire on the second floor of the restaurant and put it out with a fire extinguisher.
The fire was contained to the stove and Napa Fire Dept. Battalion Chief Dan Hall said that the restaurant should be able to open later Friday.
A spokeswoman for the restaurant, Morgan Moore, said the fire caused minimal damage.
"The restaurant and bar will be closed for lunch today, but hopes to reopen tonight for dinner service. Inspections will conducted today by the health and fire departments to ensure the building is safe for reentry and for service," Moore wrote in an email to Napa Valley Patch.
Contrary to a newspaper report, Moore said the restaurant has no pizza oven.
The phone number for The Thomas is (707) 226-7821.
