Local News

The Shanghai Chinese Restaurant, 305 10th Ave. West, Milan, was destroyed by a fire early Tuesday morning.

Multiple jurisdictions responded to the call at 5:50 a.m., after a Milan police officer saw smoking coming out of the restaurant roof. Fire crews from the Blackhawk Fire District, the City of Rock Island, the Rock Island Arsenal and the Moline Second Alarmers responded, and one Rock Island firefighter was injured, but is back on the job, according to the Blackhawk fire chief.

The Shanghai restaurant was a total loss (there were no sprinklers inside the building), and the fire caused smoke damage to Great Clips and the Spa & Nails businesses at Gaslite Square, the chief said.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time and is under investigation.
