Subway restaurant temporarily closed after small fire

Garden City Telegram – January 31, 2017

Firefighters extinguished a small fire at Subway restaurant, 1320 N. Taylor Ave., on Sunday that they believe was caused by a discarded cigarette.

The fire started around 12:47 p.m. in a collection of trash located at the back of the building. The fire penetrated the wall and firefighters had to open up the wall to extinguish the flames, causing moderate damage to the building and no injuries.

The cause of the fire is officially unknown, but a discarded cigarette is suspected as the source.

The fire was located in the vicinity of an electrical panel box at the back of the building.

Fire Chief Allen Shelton believes power to the building was shut off.

Firefighters worked to extinguish the fire until 1:24 p.m.

Subway personnel said the facility is closed and will possibly reopen Wednesday.
