I was coming home from work this evening on the train. The tracks pass by a commercial area where there are restaurants and shops. I was surprised to see firetrucks and police in the parking lot. I was even more surprised to see firefighters on the roof of the Burger King.
If I had to guess, the Burger King restaurant caught fire somehow. If you watch the video in this tweet, you can see smoke billowing from the building. The police wound up closing the whole area. Even shops, stores, and restaurants that were separated from the Burger King were forced to close up, leaving a lot of diners in the middle of an unfinished dinner.
You’d think with all that smoke that it was a pretty serious fire but about two hours later, I actually saw the drive-thru back in business again.
