Fire destroys Traffic Jam & Snug in Detroit’s Midtown

Midtown restaurant was in flames Friday morning

Traffic Jam & Snug, a restaurant in Detroit's Midtown neighborhood, caught fire early Friday morning. The interior has been completely destroyed.

DETROIT – A fire broke out inside of a popular restaurant Friday morning in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood.

Firefighters were working to save Traffic Jam & Snug, located on Canfield Street near the Shinola store and Third Man Records. Several fire departments responded to the scene, working together to put out the flames.

The fire reportedly destroyed the entire interior of the building -- both the first and second floor -- and the roof. When fire crews arrived, the building was completely engulfed, so they were not able to enter the building.

Footage from the scene can be seen in the video report above.

Officials say the restaurant is a total loss. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. The fire did not spread the neighboring businesses, like Shinola.
