Sonora, CA — The fire at the Bombay Restaurant at 301 S. Washington St. has been extinguished.

Firefighters vented the building as smoke billowed from the burning structure. Once firefighters had exited the building the structure was drenched from ground level and a firefighter on a hook and ladder truck.
Mop-up operations are well underway. S. Washington St. from Church to William remains closed.
Extent of damage and the exact cause have yet to be determined.
