LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A grease fire that raged out of control in the kitchen of the restaurant at 1343 E. Silverado Ranch Boulevard, near South Maryland Parkway, caused employees and customers to evacuate just after 12:30 Thursday afternoon.

It took Clark County firefighters about half an hour to extinguish the fire, which was reported at 12:34 p.m., said county spokesman Dan Kulin.

When firefighters arrived, heavy smoke was pouring out of the roof and could be seen throughout the interior of the restaurant, said Fire Capt. Warren Sprague. Flames also were visible in the kitchen.

The 22 firefighters who responded had the fire extinguished by 12:56 p.m., Sprague said. The fire was contained to the kitchen, though other areas of the restaurant appeared to have sustained smoke and water damage.

Employees who huddled outside the restaurant would not comment to a reporter.

The restaurant is closed, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Kulin said there were no initial reports of injuries.
