SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Firefighters believe a two-alarm fire that burned a five-story building in downtown San Rafael Sunday morning started in the kitchen of a
restaurant located inside the building.

The fire was first reported around 10 a.m. at 1132 Fourth St., according to fire Capt. Paul Bernard

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the kitchen of State Room Brewery, a restaurant and bar located in the building.
