Fire Destroys Fast Food Restaurant
LAS VEGAS (CBS) – Five employees were traken to the hospital following a fire at a Jack in the Box restaurant on Decatur Blvd. near Washington Ave.
Two of the workers were treated for smoke inhalation while the other three were transported as a precaution.
Las Vegas Fire and Rescue crews responded to the two-alarm blaze which started on the restaurant’s roof and spread to the inside of the restaurant causing an estimated $1 million in damage.
Investigators say crews were working on the roof with a torch to heat up tar when the fire accidentally started.
A crew of 75 firefighters fought the blaze. Decatur between Bonanza and Washington was closed for a few hours due to the fire.
