A popular New England lobster restaurant was damaged in a fire last weekend, but the owners plan to re-open.

Brown’s Lobster Pound in Seabrook, New Hampshire, was damaged in a 3 a.m. fire on 20 August. The damages are still being assessed.

"We had a fire in the middle of last night. Thank God no one was hurt. We will be back in business as soon as possible,” the eatery posted on its Facebook page on 20 August.

“Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. We will do our best to be at the Hampton Seafood Fest,” the restaurant added.

Hollis Brown and Louis Violette opened the Seabrook lobster pound in 1950, according to MassLive.com. Now, Brown’s Lobster Pound is run by second and third generations of the Brown family.
