Kinston Taco Bell reopens
Closed temporarily after a Saturday fire
Kinston Taco Bell employees said the fast food restaurant has reopened after a small electrical fire caused it to close for several hours Saturday morning.
Kinston Public Safety Sgt. W.C. Bayless said it happened around 10 a.m. at the Taco Bell on West Vernon Avenue.
Sgt. Bayless said a refrigerator cord in the back of the fast food restaurant had an electrical short and ignited two gas lines behind the appliance.
Everyone inside immediately ran out of the restaurant as soon as the fire started "popping."
Sgt. Bayless said crews put out the fire in less than fifteen minutes.
No one was hurt.
