CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — A popular eatery in the Enderly community is closed indefinitely after an accidental electrical fire on Wednesday.
The incident was reported around 7:00 a.m. and happened on the 3400 block of Tuckaseegee Road, which is the location of Cuzzo’s Cuisine.
Firefighters said the fire was contained within an hour by 30 firefighters, and the estimated loss is around $125,000.
No matter the cause, Cuzzo’s chef and owner, Andarrio Johnson, remains in good spirits.

The restaurant said the University location on North Tryon Street would remain open.
