An electrical fire at Chris Phillips’s Big Rig Brewery has caused $30,000 in damage, but it won’t derail the newly opened restaurant’s first weekend.

Ottawa Fire Services responded to a call at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Friday for an electrical fire inside a commercial-sized dishwasher.

Restaurant staff had attempted to extinguish the fire using three chemical extinguishers.

Fire crews ultimately extinguished the fire by opening up an access panel to the unit.

The Ottawa Senators star’s Iris Street restaurant, just west of Pinecrest, opened on Tuesday and now is expected to reopen on Saturday at 5 p.m.
