      Firefighters Respond to Grease Fire at Captain D's

      Lynchburg, VA - Captain D's on Timberlake Road in Lynchburg is temporarily closed after a fire broke out Sunday night.
      Just before midnight, officials were called to the restaurant after someone spotted smoke coming from the building.
      Officials say a deep fat frier was left on, causing a grease fire.
      The flames were put out by the building's fire sprinkler system - and officials say damage was minimal.
      Officials say afterward crews noticed a propane tank behind the building was leaking propane.
      They say the health department will do a check of Captain D's Monday morning and the restaurant may be able to open.
