Firefighters Respond to Grease Fire at Captain D's


Lynchburg, VA - Captain D's on Timberlake Road in Lynchburg is temporarily closed after a fire broke out Sunday night.

Just before midnight, officials were called to the restaurant after someone spotted smoke coming from the building.

Officials say a deep fat frier was left on, causing a grease fire.

The flames were put out by the building's fire sprinkler system - and officials say damage was minimal.

Officials say afterward crews noticed a propane tank behind the building was leaking propane.

They say the health department will do a check of Captain D's Monday morning and the restaurant may be able to open.
