EMPORIA (KSNT) – An early morning fire fully engulfed a landmark restaurant in Emporia Saturday morning.
Coach’s Grill & Bar has been in Emporia for three decades. It is currently located at 2702 W 15th Ave. The restaurant has been at this location since 2005.
Battalion Chief Ryan Conley said he was notified of the fire by the owners around 5 a.m. When the fire department arrived heavy smoke and fire were coming from the building according to Conley.
“It took quite a while, took three hours to get it under control,” Conley told KSNT.
Thankfully no one was hurt, Conley told KSNT. “It’s definitely a blessing to make sure everyone can go home,” Conley said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
