Small Fire Breaks Out at Irving’s

A small fire broke out at Irving’s bagel café at about 9:00 p.m. Tuesday evening. Local firefighters quickly arrived at the scene and blocked off a section of College Avenue for over 30 minutes.

The fire is believed to have started when a small pile of rags in the kitchen spontaneously combusted, according to Assistant Fire Chief Shawn Kauffman. He also added that the fire will be investigated further, but that it doesn’t appear to be suspicious at this time.

Irving’s owner David Schoenholtz says the damage sustained was minimal and the popular bagel café will open just a bit late this morning after everything is cleaned up and the health inspector gives approval. Kathleen Kane, the Democratic nominee for Attorney General, is still expected to make a campaign stop at 9:45 a.m.

Irving’s might just be a place to enjoy an occasional bagel and $8 sandwich to you, but to Onward State, it’s home. To see a place under siege where so many of our writers spend their days was hard to see, and we’re thankful this wasn’t more serious.

Long live, Irvings.
