LOS GATOS, Calif. (AP) — A top-rated Northern California restaurant is severely damaged and a firefighter is recovering from injuries after an early morning fire.

Santa Clara County Fire Battalion Chief Kendal Pearson says Monday's two-alarm blaze damaged the attic, roof and interior of the renowned Manresa restaurant in Los Gatos. Firefighters arrived at the restaurant quickly since there's a fire station about 100 yards away.

Pearson says the restaurant wasn't destroyed, but one firefighter was injured in a fall while fighting the blaze and was taken to a hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The popular restaurant received two stars in the 2014 Michelin Guide to restaurants. It had been closed during the July 4 holiday weekend and had planned to reopen Wednesday.
