Business Fire – Crawfords Restaurant

The Cowpens Fire Department responded shortly after 9:00 PM, March 11, 2012 to a business fire at the Crawford’s Restaurant (The Burger Barn). Cowpens Engine 2 and Ladder 1 arrived on-scene to find a working fire with moderate smoke showing from the roof.

Firefighters from Engine 2 gained entry to the business and made a swift attack on the fire while Ladder 1 was set up and crews prepared for possible ventilation of a well involved attic fire. The fire was brought under control within five minutes of initial unit’s arrival. Other units on-scene were Converse Engine 3, and Cowpens Rescue 1.

The business sustained fire damage located mostly in the attic area but heavy smoke and heat damage throughout the restaurant.
