BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A popular restaurant's smokehouse caught fire Sunday night, but the damage was contained to one area and officials say the restaurant was not damaged by the fire.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department reported there was a fire at Frank's Smokehouse on Airline Highway around 9 p.m.

Investigators said the cause of the fire is unintentional and no foul play is suspected.

Mark Miles with BRFD said firefighters arrived at the scene to find flames shooting out the side of the restaurant where the smoke room is located.

They said they were able to keep the fire from spreading, but the flames caused a little damage inside the store.

The building also has some smoke damage.
