kitchen hood Fire at Houlihan’s closes indefinitely

A fire in the kitchen area of the South side Houlihan’s has closed the restaurant indefinitely, according to Springfield Fire Marshall Kevin Binam.

Today’s fire was caused when a fire from a wood-burning grill grew and ignited grease and creosote in the hood above the grill, said Binam.

That caused combustible materials around the hood to catch fire. The fire damage was primarily contained to the area above the kitchen in the drop ceiling, said Binam.
