The incident happened around 10 a.m. at the McDonalds located at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Amsler Street.
Eastbound traffic on Amsler Street was closed from Crenshaw until the fire was put out. The employees said they were cooking when a grease fire got out of hand. They evacuated the customers inside and tried to extinguish the flames. No injuries were reported.
McDonalds will be closed for the reminder of the day and tomorrow because of damages.
