Reader Lisanne Anderson spoke to one of the workers who was involved in the cleaning operation at XO Creperie in Loehmann’s Seaport Plaza after yesterday’s fire, who said that he didn’t believe that that there was much damage to the restaurant. Much of the damage was caused by putting out the fire, which included breaking the windows. Apparently the fire occurred when no one, including workers, was in the restaurant at approximately 5:30 a.m., rather than 6:20 a.m. as we reported earlier. He acknowledged that investigators were there yesterday, but doesn’t believe that they’re sure yet of the origin of the fire.  Loehmann’s will be closed through Monday for cleanup, as there is still water residue and a pervasive smell of smoke on the second and third floors. The businesses on the ground floor, such as the Seaport Buffet, are open today.
