Fairfax County firefighters responded to a restaurant fire May 21 at approximately 2:45 a.m., in the Kingstowne area of Fairfax County. The restaurant, Macaroni Grill, is located at 5925 Kingstowne Towne Center.
Firefighters said they encountered light smoke and sounding fire alarms upon their arrival. As smoke conditions worsened, firefighters discovered fire within the duct exhaust system above the pizza oven in the kitchen area. The path of the fire had traveled through the duct work and extended into the ceiling and roof area. Despite finding it difficult to access the fire because of the extensive duct work, firefighters said they brought the fire under control in approximately 70 minutes. No one was in the restaurant when the fire broke out. The restaurant will be closed until repairs are completed. There were no injuries. Damage is estimated at $300,000. According to fire investigators, the fire was accidental. Grease in the ductwork caused the fire.
