Minor Fire Shuts Down South Kansas City Eatery



F
ive companies of the Kansas City MO Fire department were called at 10:18 a.m. Thursday morning to a reported fire at Couzin's Catfish restaurant in the 8700 block of Blue Ridge Boulevard.



This CSW photographer was first on the scene- and witnessed dark brown smoke coming from the roof of the 1-story structure while employees inside evacuated.

The fire was in a deep fryer and vent- and was pretty-much extinguished by the restaurant's fire supression system and a handline from a fire department pumper.


Damage was fairly light- but the KC-MO Health department was called and the restaurant is closed to the public until health department inspector determines the establishment is safe for food service.
