Fire At Popular Hyde Park Restaurant

Roosevelt Firefighters were called out to Joseph’s Steakhouse in Hyde Park this afternoon.   

The popular restaurant on Violet Avenue was fully involved in flames when emergency responders arrived on the scene around 2pm.  The fire quickly went to two alarms as a ladder truck was requested to the site to better attack the blaze.  Over the decades the building has housed a series of different restaurants.
