  • This is the second fire they have had there with that fryer. When is the owner going to fix the problem instead of putting people at risk. They might not be so lucky the next time. This is our families working and eating there.

  • Should have been an automatic fire supression over the fryer. Can’t imagine a city no requiring one. Could have been much worse.
