Gazette Premium Content Deep fryer leads to Colorado Springs restaurant fire

By Tom Roeder Published: May 4, 2013

Colorado Springs firefighters battled a blaze in a hamburger restaurant's deep fryer Saturday night.

Firefighters spotted flames when they arrived to Drifter's Hamburgers off Jamboree Drive near the Chapel Hills Mall just after 10:20 p.m. Fire officials said oil in a fryer apparently led to a flash fire after the business had closed for the night.

'Fire out and was contained to the deep fat fryer, ' the department Tweeted at 10:40 p.m. 'Damage limited to the fryer and smoke throughout (the building). '

The blaze did disrupt traffic in the area as police closed a road near the mall to give firefighters room.

The exact cause of the fire and a cost estimate on damages weren't available.
