Buffet warming unit cause of early morning fire at Golden Corral

Golden Corral Fire

Firefighters work to put out a fire inside Golden Corral early Thursday morning.

An early morning fire at Golden Corral caused $50,000 damage and kept the north Lincoln restaurant closed on Thursday, according to Lincoln Fire & Rescue.

It happened just before 5 a.m.

Capt. Nancy Crist said firefighters arrived to see flames and smoke in the business at 3940 N. 26th St.

The sprinkler system kept the fire contained to that area, and firefighters were able to put it out in 10 minutes.

She said the fire started in a buffet warming unit. The health department was called to the business.

The restaurant said Thursday evening that it plans to reopen Friday.
