Golden Corral in Shreveport on Youree Drive is closed after a Thursday afternoon fire at the eatery.

Firefighters got the call to the Youree Drive business just before 6:00 p.m. Employees spotted a fire coming from an area near the dumpster. But firefighters arrived and saw flames near the back of the business.


From the initial investigation, it looks like the blaze started near the grease trap and spread to the back part of the restaurant. A small section of the fire was very hard to get to, so firefighters had to cut a hole in the roof to put out the flames.

The fire was out after about 30 minutes. A section of Youree Drive was shut down as crews supplied water to the firetrucks.

The manager announced there was an emergency in the business which was evacuated. At the time, there were 20 workers and about 20 customers inside before they were all moved outside.

No one was hurt.
