  • The University City Fire Department responds to a call from Blueberry Hill in the Delmar Loop on March 24, 2011

The University City Fire Department sent trucks to Blueberry Hill late this morning, blocking traffic for at least two blocks in the Delmar Loop.

But although the restaurant at 6504 Delmar Boulevard was evacuated as a precaution, the situation turns out to have been all smoke and no fire. Literally: The furnace motor was on the fritz, which caused it to blow smoke.

The fire department was summoned to make sure everything was okay. There was no damage. The burgers and darts and fine oldies music will continue as normal.

Whew! Nothing like a little fillip of excitement on a dreary day.
