Last Updated - 8:19 a.m.
Around 1:15 a.m. Monday, Lawrence fire crews were called to the Burger King at 1107 W. 6th Street on reports of smoke from the roof of the building. This address is on the southeast corner of 6th and Missouri streets.
Firefighters arrived and quickly found visible fire on the roof and then in the attic area of the building. Employees told arriving crews that everyone had made it out of the building.
Incident command ordered a second alarm response at 1:20 a.m.
At 1:40 a.m., crews reported that they had knocked down the bulk of the fire. Crews are making their way back inside the building to extinguish hot spots after initially fighting the fire from the exterior only.
The fire was reported to be under control shortly after 2 a.m.
No injuries were reported. A damage estimate was not immediately available and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
A section of 6th Street was closed as firefighters were on scene and it has since reopened.
