Arzi's Restaurant damaged in Friday night fire

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Firefighters say they were called out to the Arzi's Restaurant on Highland Road after reports of a building fire. The fire happened Friday night just after 10:00 pm.

Firefighters arrived on the scene to find fire coming from the roof in the rear of the building.  They gained access to the building through the front, and were able to put the fire out before it could cause major damage. However, the building did suffer a lot of smoke damage.  Businesses that share the building with Arzi's received some smoke damage as well.

Investigators say they believe the fire was caused by a fan motor that was located in the rear corner of the kitchen. No injuries have been reported.
