Working toward reopening

January 10, 2014

GALLIPOLIS — Contractors with Kinsale Construction were on site at the Tuscany Cuccini restaurant Thursday continuing the clean-up effort that has been under way since a November fire visibly damaged a portion of the roof. First responders were dispatched to a fire on Eastern Ave. in Gallipolis early on November 13, 2013 — a fire that reportedly started in the attic space above the restaurant. Firefighters had to force entry within the building and subsequently gain entry into the attic inside the building to extinguish the fire. Kinsale representatives on site said it is the hope of the owners to reopen the popular Italian restaurant sometime in March.
