EUGENE, Ore. -- The Café Yumm! restaurant on Willamette Street in Eugene is closed after a fire Thursday morning. 

The manager said at first they thought some food caught on fire, until they saw smoke coming from some light fixtures and realized it was inside the wall.

They quickly got everyone out, notified other businesses and made sure the gas to the building was turned off.

A representative with Café Yumm! said they hope to reopen the dining area they share with other businesses in the next couple of days. He said it will likely be a week and a half before the restauraunt reopens but they should know more about the timeline in the next couple of days.
