LINCOLN PARK—Juno ownership released a statement a few minutes ago regarding this morning's fire. In part, it reads: "the front of the restaurant and the apartments in the building were badly damaged, but fortunately Juno's kitchen, sushi bar and main dining room were not damaged by the fire. We will have to re-build the separate bar area at the front of the restaurant...we cannot immediately determine how long it will take us to open our doors again." No one was injured in the blaze.
