LINCOLN–(KFOR Dec. 2)–Noodles and Company at 50th and “O” will be closed the rest of Friday, following a two-alarm fire in the kitchen area.

LFR Captain Nancy Crist says crews were called just after 6am Friday to the scene, where a passerby saw smoke and flames.  The fire was confined to the stove area and some plastic bowls were left nearby. It’s possible either the bowls toppled over near a pilot source and caught fire or radiant heat ignited them.

Crist says damage is minimal and no dollar amounts were available.  No one was hurt.
