According to Division Chief Mike Dudlo of the Burbank Police Department, an employee called 911 around 6:15 p.m. after a fire broke out in the restaurant’s broiler and began to spread to other parts of the kitchen.
Dudlo said there were no customers in the restaurant at the time of the incident and all employees got out of the building safely.
The fire was struck by Burbank firefighters with assistance from neighboring agencies that responded to the alarm.
The blaze is not considered suspicious by fire officials. The city’s building commissioner was on scene and deemed the restaurant unsafe to continue operation.
A sign in the window Thursday read, “Closed For kitchen Repairs.” Burger King officials could not be immediately reached for comment by the Burbank Beat.
