Deja Vu for Satchel's Pizza as Gainesville Fire Rescue responded to a fire at the restaurant on NE 23rd Avenue.  Fortunately the restaurant was closed on Mondays so no customers or staff were in danger.  The fire was contained in gift shop/museum area, known as Lightnin' Salvage. The restaurant building itself appears to be untouched.  An investigation into the fire is continuing with arson not ruled out.  Although Gainesville Fire Rescue said the main building could open Tuesday, Satchel's tweeted early this morning that the restaurant would re-open soon.  The fire brings back fresh memories of the February 2012 fire which consumed the entire property.  Satchels re-opened within 4 months.
