ANCHORAGE, Alaska -

A Friday morning break-in at Serrano’s Mexican Grill has prompted a burglary and an attempted arson investigation by the Anchorage Fire Department.

Anchorage Police Department officers and AFD crews were alerted to a possible cabinet fire at the East Northern Lights Boulevard restaurant around 7 a.m. Friday where officers discovered burglars had gained access to the building through a window. It is unclear how much money was stolen, APD spokeswoman Dani Myren noted.

The burglars made entrace into Serrano’s by breaking one the restaurant's a windows, Myren said. It’s unclear whether or not the alarm was triggered when the window was broken.

AFD will continue its investigation of both the attempted arson and the burglary.

Serrano's was open for business at the time of this report.
