Lawton IHOP Closed After Kitchen Fire

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ A local restaurant is closed for business after a fire broke out in the kitchen.

It happened at IHOP on Cache Road around 9:30 AM Friday. By the time firefighters arrived, staff had already evacuated the building.

Firefighters say the grease fire proved difficult to put out. At first, they used extinguishers, but when that didn't work, they had to bring in the hose.

Restaurant staff would not say when they plan to reopen or how much damage was caused, but firefighters estimate it was about $50,000.
