Monett Fire Department, Barry-Lawrence Ambulance and Missouri Gas Energy responded to the report of a fire at Burger King in Monett around 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

According to Travis Brown, store manager, all employees and customers were evacuated safely and the restaurant sustained little damage.

Brown said he believes the fire started in the broiler's upper hood system and was contained to that area. Brown said the store might be closed for about a day.

"It could have been a lot worse," Brown said.
