Albany restaurant to reopen after fire

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A popular East Albany restaurant hopes to reopen soon after a fire.

Officials said a small fire broke out in the kitchen of Western Sizzlin' on East Oglethorpe Blvd Wednesday morning.

Employees used a fire extinguisher to put it out.

The restaurant is cleaning up after the fire, but by law must have the fire inspector and environmental health inspector give approval before it can reopen.

The owner said they hope to be open again by Wednesday evening.
