Griff's restaurant damaged by fire
The Bossier City Fire Department responded to a structure fire this morning at a local restaurant that has long been a mainstay in Bossier City.
Fire crews were called to Griff’s Restaurant in the 2900 block of Old Minden Road at approximately 9:15 a.m. The first engine company arrived on the scene within four minutes and found heavy smoke and flames coming from the building. Firefighters located the fire in the attic and had it under control in about 15 minutes.
Several employees were in the restaurant preparing to open for the day when they noticed smoke and called Bossier 9-1-1. All of the employees got out of the building unharmed.
The structure sustained heavy smoke damage to much of the attic along with smoke and water damage to much of the building. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
