Tucson firefighters say a Mexican restaurant has suffered a fire

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Tucson firefighters say a Mexican restaurant has suffered a fire just two months after its other location was closed due to similar circumstances.

Fire Capt. Barrett Baker says a fire crew arrived at Guadalajara Fiesta Grill on North Kolb Road shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday and found the building’s attic in flames.

Baker says additional crews had to assist in battling heavy smoke and flames.

Firefighters spent several hours extinguishing hot spots and the building is considered a total loss.

The building was unoccupied at the time and there were no injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the owners plan to rebuild.

The blaze comes two months after another Guadalajara Grill closed because of an early morning fire.

A call came in to the Roanoke Fire Department around 2:30 p.m. from Reno Red’s Frontier Cooking. Capt. Doug Parks said the smoker used in the restaurant caused an accidental blaze that brought responding units from Trophy Club, Westlake, Keller, Southlake, Flower Mound and Argyle.

Parks said the fire did some damage to the restaurant’s bar area and cooking area. The restaurant was open at the time of the fire, but everyone got out safely and there were no injuries.

Parks said an early estimate placed the damage cost at $80,000.
