— Early this morning, a fire at Riel Restaurant in Montrose caused what appears to be minor damage. When Houston Press contributor Nicholas Hall drove by the restaurant, he saw that flames had reached “all the way up the side of the building.” Using a fire extinguisher from his car, Hall helped put out the fire alongside a neighbor. Hall also alleges that the circumstances surrounding the fire point to it being intentional. [Houston Press]
