Kitchen Fire Shuts Down McDonald's in Chicago

A McDonald's in Chicago is closed following a fire that broke out in the kitchen.

According to the Chicago Tribune, a McDonald's restaurant in Orland Park was evacuated and shut down after a kitchen fire broke out on Saturday just after 1:30 p.m. Firefighters were quick to respond and put out the blaze.

No injuries were reported in the incident and investigators are currently working to discover what prompted the blaze to start. Damage from the fire was contained to the interior of the fast-food restaurant, which will be closed for a few days according to the restaurant's manager.

The fast-food chain restaurant, which has been around since the 1940s, recently made headlines when it announced that it'd be bringing back the fan favorite Dollar Menu. The new and improved updated menu, which has more people saying that they're "lovin' it,'" features three different pricing tiers, with items available for $1, $2, and $3.


The $1 tier consists of a Sausage Burrito, a McChicken, a Cheeseburger and any size soft drink. Options in the $2 tier include a Sausage McGriddle, a 2-Piece Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, a Bacon McDouble and any small McCafe beverage. The $3 tier features a Sausage McMuffin with Egg, a Classic Chicken Sandwich, a Triple Cheeseburger and Happy Meal.
