WEST FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Spitfire Bar and Grill closed Saturday afternoon after a fire started in the kitchen.

WFFD was called just before noon and when firefighters arrived on the scene they found heavy smoke and flames coming from the roof above the commercial kitchen.

Authorities say the flames appeared to have started under the commercial grill and spread through the exhaust system.

Battalion Chief Joey Porter says there is significant damage including smoke and fire damage. The cost of damages is still to be determined.

They were able to quickly put out the blaze.

No injuries have been reported, but Porter says one firefighter suffered from heat exhaustion and is doing fine.

The cause is still under investigation.
