GENERIC: fire blaze

A Flint restaurant is closed after a morning fire.

Flint firefighters were called to Empress of China, 2320 S. Dort Highway, at around 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Flint Fire Battalion Chief Steve Cobb said the fire started when the business was starting up their hoods in the kitchen, and the fire went up into the exhaust system.

Officials said the fire spread to the roof, but was contained in that area, although there was smoke damage in the rest of the building.

The exact cause of the fire is unclear.

No one is hurt.
