Sign Fire Slams Kirkwood Steakhouse
An electrical fire kept a popular Kirkwood restaurant closed on Mothers Day, one of the most important business days of the year for most restaurants.
Investigators say the fire began in a neon outdoor sign at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant on Kirkwood Road.
Aside from the sign, most of the damage inside was water damage with managers saying they hope to reopen the restaurant later today or tomorrow at the latest.
No one was hurt in the fire which broke out at mid-morning, just as the staff was preparing to open the restaurant.
