Fu Mei Kitchen, a chinese food restaurant in Levittown which was badly damaged in a July fire, is planning on re-opening sometime around March, according to Levittown Fire Inspector Owen Magee.

Although the building is still boarded up, the restaurant has just started undergoing renovations as the owners plan on coming back to business, Magee said.

A "For Rent" sign is currently on the storefront next door, which was a salon.

The fire at Fu Mei started when someone held a cigarette lighter up to the plexi-glass front window, Magee said. The fire burned upward into the restaurant, spreading next door to Lombardo's Pizza and affecting other stores.

A supervisor at the Nassau County Fire Marshal's office said that although they have some leads in the case, it is still open.

Salon April Marie, located a few stores down, held a collection in July to help and assist the owners of Fu Mei Kitchen.
