    A restaurant in Burlington, Massachusetts, reopened its doors on Saturday, two days after its general manager died following a chemical incident.

    Only a few cars were in the parking lot of the Buffalo Wild Wings on Saturday evening, and friends of Ryan Baldera who were at the restaurant tell NBC10 Boston it was a somber atmosphere inside. 

    A sign on the restaurant's front door, which was left by a Good Samaritan, paid tribute to the 32-year-old from Lawrence, who died Thursday evening after he was rushed to the hospital in serious condition.

    Baldera, who was a new father, became overcome by toxic fumes when an employee mixed two cleaning agents while trying to clean the kitchen floor.
