Japanese eatery in Cancun catches fire

Cancun, Q.R. — A fire in a Japanese eatery in Superblock 26 needed assistance from Cancun firemen Monday when their kitchen caught fire. Elements of the Cancun Fire Department and Civil Protection Directorate attended to the Monday afternoon report of a restaurant fire.

One unit with men arrived at the scene, while police officers closed vehicular circulation on the street, while flames were suffocated. Employees of the Japanese food establishment were busy removing furniture to help stop flames from spreading.

Preliminary accounts say the fire likely started in the kitchen due to a possible accumulation of fat in the hood area in the extraction system due to the heat generated on the grills and stove. No injuries were reported in the fire, only material damage to the inside of the eatery.
