ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)— Flames coming from a Church’s Chicken prompted a response from the Albuquerque Fire Department Thursday.
AFD was called to the restaurant’s location at Broadway around 3:15 a.m. after calls came in describing smoke and flames coming from the building.
Firefighters put out the blaze from a nearby tree and had the scene under control within 15 minutes.
No injuries were reported, however, extensive damage inside the building will cause the location to remain closed for a couple weeks.
Investigators say the fire started in the kitchen but the cause of the fire remains unknown.
