DES MOINES, Iowa — A fire forced a downtown Des Moines restaurant to close Sunday.

Around 2 p.m., firefighters were called to a kitchen fire at Centro in Des Moines.

No one was injured, but crews evacuated the residences above the restaurant as a precaution.

The restaurant said staff and mechanical systems responded quickly to the fire, minimizing the damage.

Centro put a statement on Facebook that said the restaurant will be closed until further notice. The statement read in part:

“We anticipate we will reopen within the week; the Centro team is reaching out to groups and reservations currently booked with us for accommodation at our sister properties – Django, Malo, Bubba and Teddy Maroon’s.”
