Grease fire breaks out at Sky Harbor eatery

A fire broke out Sunday morning in the kitchen of a restaurant at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Phoenix fire Capt. Tony Mure said an employee of Chelsea's Kitchen in Terminal 4 of the airport acted quickly in using a fire extinguisher to knock down the fire in the restaurant's ventilation hood.

An estimated 30 people at Chelsea's Kitchen and a neighboring restaurant were evacuated, though there was no damage to the eatery next door to Chelsea's.

The airport terminal wasn't evacuated.

Mure said the fire was likely caused by grease that had accumulated in the ventilation hood and that Chelsea's Kitchen had minimal damage from the fire.
