The initial report indicated smoke was seen rising from a vent on top of the building, according to KEPR-CBS TV.

 HOW BADLY WAS INSIDE DAMAGED?

Crews were able to knock down the flames with 10-15 minutes, the extent of the damage to the restaurant is not yet known.

Chief Michael said the facility does not have a fire detection or suppression/sprinker system, but the initial report came soon enough (plus quick fire crew response) saved the building from a much worse fate.

The investigation continues.
