KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOX) - A back room of the Honey Pit Smokehouse restaurant in Kirkwood caught fire just before dawn Thursday morning.

"Crews got here really quick, knocked the fire out before it actually got in the building (dining room)," Fire Chief Jim Silvernail tells KMOX. "We did have some smoke in the building. Other than that, no fire extension and nobody was hurt."

Silvernail says the fire began in the area where meat smokers are used overnight. An employee noticed flames and called authorities.
