Thursday, Sept. 5 is the target reopening for the White Dog Cafe in Wayne, which suffered smoke and water damage in an Aug. 1 fire.

A Radnor fire official said the fire started in a ventilation shaft near the grill.

The major repair was a replacement of the flue.

The White Dog occupies the ground floor of a two-story complex that also houses offices and other businesses in the 200 block of Lancaster Avenue.

"I'm happy to be open and getting my staff back to work after five weeks," said owner Marty Grims.
