Business has been hot at Saigon Landing, which opened last November in Greenwood Village, but no one wanted it this hot: Late Sunday, the building at 6585 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard caught fire -- firefighters suspect lightning -- and was heavily damaged.
"The customer just gets to know us and suddenly they cannot come," owner Victor Chan told Channel 4. "We'll fix it, we'll get it better. Maybe (it will) take a month or two or three, but we will reopen."
Insurance estimates put the damage at over $150,000.
