HOUSTON -– Houston firefighters were called to Timmy Chan's Chicken & Fried Rice on the southwest side after a deep fryer caught fire.

Firefighters said it happened around 11 p.m. Thursday on W. Fuqua near White Heather Drive.

The Houston Fire Department put out flames in the roof of the business.

Investigators said someone left the restaurant’s fryer on, and it caught fire. The fire spread from a wall to the ceiling.

The fire could have been much worse, but the restaurant’s sprinklers kicked on and knocked down the flames.
