A fire broke out early Tuesday at a Lincoln Park neighborhood Mexican restaurant, right next to the alley where John Dillinger was gunned down after leaving the Biograph Theatre.

Police were notified around 3:25 a.m. of a fire at Fiesta Mexicana, at 2421 N. Lincoln Ave. The fire started in a kitchen of the restaurant, according to a Belmont District police lieutenant, who said the fire was put out in about 15 or 20 minutes.

Lincoln and Fullerton avenues were both blocked as firefighters battled the blaze, but they had fully reopened by 5:30 a.m.
