A popular Wood River Restaurant is closed following a Sunday night fire. Fire crews from several jurisdictions responded to the blaze at Mama Mia’s, located in the first block of Edwardsvile Road, just before 11:30pm Sunday. There were firefighters on the scene from Wood River, East Alton, Edwardsville, Rosewood Heights, and Roxana.
When crews first arrived on the scene there was heavy smoke coming from the building, and shortly after, flames broke through the roof. Captain Leonard Revelle of the Wood River Fire Department says the fire did a lot of damage.

He says a local investigation team should have a cause and origin report completed in the “not too distant future.” Preliminary speculation has the fire starting in the kitchen area. No injuries were reported, and crews left the scene around 4:30am Monday.
