Just before 5pm Monday firefighters quickly responded The Black Rock Oyster Bar on Black Rock Turnpike for a report of a fire in the basement of the restaurant and that the fire was near a propane tank. Firefighters quickly doused the blaze and vented the basement with fans. Black Rock Turnpike at Commerce and Chambers was closed for a short time but has since reopened. The fire is under investigation. It did not extend into the dining area of the restaurant and it expected to reopen shortly.
