A fire in the restaurant section of the North Country Brewing Co. in Slippery Rock damaged only a small amount of equipment, director of operations Keith Kolarosky said.

The restaurant and brewery did not have to close because of the Aug. 3 fire.

“We're not quite sure how it started,” Kolarosky said, but speculated either lint or grease.

He estimated about $500 of damages to the dryer and some cleaning rags.

Cleaning crews noticed the fire around 6:15 a.m. and called 911, Kolarosky said.

“We got lucky,” he said. “There's a bad smell we're working on getting rid of, but there really wasn't much damage.”
