BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -
Bossier City fire investigators have determined the cause of the fire that heavily damaged a local restaurant on Monday morning.
Investigators say the fire at Griff's Restaurant in the 2900 block of Old Minden Road was accidental, and started inside a ballast that was attached to the restaurant's sign on the front of the building.
The fire broke out around 9 a.m. Monday, and was noticed by employees who were in the restaurant preparing to open for the day. Everyone got out unharmed and firefighters had the flames under control in about 15 minutes.
The building suffered heavy smoke damage to much of the attic, as well as smoke and water damage to much of the rest of the building.
The restaurant is expected to be closed for the next several weeks for repairs.
Griff's of America spokesman Harvey Fattig has told KSLA News 12 they'll be meeting with employees this week to discuss what can be done to assist them while the restaurant is closed, and that transfers to the Shreveport location are possible.
