Wendy's on Dawson closed after fire

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Wendy's at Dawson Rd. and North Slappey Blvd. has been closed due to a fire in the kitchen.

The Albany Plans Review Specialist, Carlton Russell, was called around 9 a.m. this morning. Russell determined there was enough damage done to the kitchen to close the restaurant.

The fire started in one of the kitchen's deep fryers and was isolated to the kitchen area. No injuries were reported.

There will have to be another inspection by Russell and Environmental Health before it can open back up. The location anticipates reopening either Monday or Tuesday of this week.
