I drive by this restaurant every weekend, and I noticed that it was closed. Turns out it was because of a fire Friday night.

KWTX is reporting that a fire broke out Friday night at the Church's Chicken on 31st street in Temple had a fire start up. The crew tried to put it out but failed. The fire department arrived around 9:45 p.m. and made quick work of putting it out.

Alas, by that time the damage was done. It's estimated at around $40,000 in damages. It seems the fire began in the fryer area.

One person was treated on scene by the first responders, but refused to go across the street to the hospital.
