According to Tyler Fire Marshal Paul Findley, the fire started in the kitchen at one of the deep fryers and spread from there. The fryer did have an extinguishing system under the hood, which activated but failed to completely put out the fire. Findley said the Tyler Fire Department is checking cameras for more details on the cause and will release more information tomorrow.
