MOBILE, Ala. – At approximately 15:28 hours, Mobile Fire-Rescue Department responded to Texas Roadhouse at 6150 Airport Boulevard. Engine 22 was initially dispatched for an electronic fire alarm sounding at the business.
Upon their arrival at 15:32 hours, flames and smoke were present, bursting through the roof. Engine 22’s company requested a full response. Additional crews were dispatched to the scene at approximately 15:33.
All occupants were already safely outside of the structure prior to MFRD arrival on scene.
Upon entry, fire personnel discovered flames in the kitchen and immediately initiated an aggressive fire attack. Ladder truck crews gained access to the roof, where they successfully cut an adequate-sized hole to assist with ventilation of heated smoke and gas.
Firefighters were able to successfully confine the incident to the kitchen area. All signs of flames were extinguished without further incident.
There were no injuries reported from the scene.
The cause of the fire has been determined as accidental.
