Update, April 11, 10:15 a.m.: Sag Harbor firefighters were able to quickly locate and contain a fire Tuesday night in the Lulu Kitchen and Bar building at 126 Main Street, the department's chief, Bruce Schiavoni, said Wednesday morning. 

The fire "made it up into the ducts of the stove's exhaust," he said, and traveled through the ducts to the roof of the building. "We had to cut some holes in the roof to get at the vent," Chief Schiavoni said.

The building has two offices on the second floor. The front office was fine, the chief said, but in the back one "we had to cut the wall open to get at the ductwork." There was water damage to that office, and in the restaurant kitchen, as well as "very minor smoke and water damage" to the second story of the adjoining In Home store at 132 Main Street.

Original, April 10, 10:22 p.m.: Sag Harbor firefighters were on the scene Tuesday night of a fire in the Main Street building that houses Lulu Kitchen and Bar. 

Smoke and flames could be seen coming from the roof of the building at 126 Main Street, but it was not immediately clear if more than one building was involved. Light smoke was reported in the In Home building at 132 Main Street, as well. East Hampton has sent a ladder truck to assist the Sag Harbor department and the East Hampton Town fire marshal is headed there to investigate. 

Although firefighters reported earlier that the fire was under control and that they believed it was in the ductwork of the building, they continued to search for its source as of 10 p.m. Tuesday.
