JUST IN: Smoke from the roof of a matchbox in Pentagon City | ARLnow

A restaurant in the Pentagon City mall was evacuated due to smoke coming from the roof.

Firefighters from Arlington, Alexandria and elsewhere are at the scene of the Matchbox wood-fired pizzeria at 1100 S. Hayes Street trying to find the source of the smoke. It is currently believed that debris in the kitchen ventilation system may have caught fire.

Firefighters used a ladder truck to get to the rooftop, which was apparently not accessible from the restaurant space.

Rush-hour commuters should expect traffic impacts from the emergency response along S. Hayes Street, which is closed between Army Navy Drive and 15th Street S., according to Arlington Alert.
