Temple Firefighters Fight Electrical Fire at Wes's Burger Shack

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- A downtown Temple restaurant sustained extensive smoke and heat damage after an electrical fire late Saturday night.

Firefighters were called to Wes's Burger Shack & More on Main Street around 10:15 p.m. Saturday. They had to force their way into the two-story business, where they found heavy smoke and almost zero visibility.

Responders found a fire in the ceiling above a storage closet using a thermal imaging camera. The flames were quickly put out, and the fire was completely under control by just after 11:30. The last truck stayed on scene until a little after 1 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators determined the fire was electrical, and ruled it unintentional.

They have not determined a dollar loss at this point, but there is extensive smoke and heat damage to the restaurant. No injuries were reported.
