Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A big day for business is down the drain after a fire shuts down Burger King in North Fargo.

Flames broke out in a fryer at the 19th Avenue location just before 6 this morning.

Two employees were inside at the time. They turned on the automatic extinguishing system and called 9-1-1.

When firefighters arrived, flames were coming out of vents on the roof, but they got it under control quickly.

They say there's a lot to cleanup, but the business should be able to open once that's finished.

Gary Lorenz- Fargo Fire Dept. Asst. Chief: “There is very little structural damage. The fire was contained to the area around the fryers and their hood vent system. Their biggest problem is going to be cleanup.”

Owners were not available for comment today.
