Police Are Investigating a San Antonio Restaurant Porch Fire

By  | 


On Thursday around 2:30 p.m. at the Grady’s Bar-B-Q restaurant on Nakoma Street in San Antonio, firefighters took care of a blazing porch fire that engulfed the entire wooden area in flames. Luckily, the fire barely reached the main building of the restaurant, so only the party room was impacted by the smoke. Still, MySA.com states that the restaurant suffered about $20K in damage.

Firefighters were called after a customer came inside the building to notify staff that a small fire had started outside. Since they quickly left the property afterward, police are investigating the incident for the possibility of arson.

No one was hurt during the fire, and all of the customers were able to evacuate with ease. At this time, it’s not known how long the Grady’s Bar-B-Q location will need to be closed for repairs. KSAT reports that it shouldn’t be long due to the minimal damage to the interior.

Marx Cortes humorously admitted on Facebook that the ordeal almost became like an unconventional advertisement for their food. “TFW the Grady’s by your work is on Fire and the smell makes you want BBQ!!” he wrote.
