Fire sparks at East County Burger King

EL CAJON, Calif. — Fire crews worked to knock down a blaze at a Burger King in El Cajon Sunday.

Authorities were called to the fast food restaurant in the 800 block of North Johnson Avenue  just before 11:15 a.m. Those inside the restaurant at the time of the fire were evacuated.

The fire appears to have started because of an issue with the kitchen’s ventilation system, Heartland Fire Department said. Fire crews added that the blaze created a lot of smoke but did not spread outside the restaurant.

No one was injured in the fire.
