Kitchen Fire Closes Texas Roadhouse In Danvers

DANVERS, MA — A kitchen fire forced the Texas Roadhouse on Newbury Street to close for a second day on Tuesday.

The fire occurred Monday morning while the restaurant was closed. The Texas Roadhouse remained closed as of early Tuesday afternoon.

Danvers Fire Captain Jim Brooks told Patch that while the department is still investigating the cause of the fire it appears to have started in one of the fryolators.

“There was a substantial amount of damage to the fryolater and the hood system,” Brooks said. “They are trying their best to get it back up and running.”

Brooks said Danvers fire responded to the fire about 4 a.m.

“Thank you for all your concern!” the restaurant posted on its Facebook page. “The small fire was not extensive. We are so thankful no one was injured or present. We are working hard to make sure we are up and running safely as soon as possible.

“We will keep you posted!”
