SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There were no injuries reported after a smoker caught fire at a Suffolk restaurant on Thursday.

Suffolk fire crews responded to Mason’s Grill & Smokehouse in the 1000 block of Burnetts Way around 9:10 a.m. for a report of smoke coming from the building.

Fire officials said an internal smoker that vents from the top of the building experienced an internal fire. That fire then spread outside of the smoker and caused some damage to the kitchen area and range hood.

There were no injuries, however, the smoker was damaged and will need to be replaced.

The restaurant is now closed due to the fire.

The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause.
