Ledyard — Firefighters quickly extinguished a fire Friday at Christo’s Pizza restaurant at 126 Gallup Hill Road.

Police were the first to arrive and confirmed the fire. Doucette said firefighters forced their way into the business and contained the fire to the kitchen.

He said the quick actions of the firefighters helped save the restaurant and prevented the blaze from damaging other businesses.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
