GREENSBORO, N.C. — Firefighters in Greensboro were called to a structure fire at Stamey’s Barbecue Tuesday night.
According to the Greensboro Fire Department, fire units were dispatched to Stamey’s Barbecue, at 2812 Battleground Avenue, just before midnight.
When the units arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the building.
According to Deputy Fire Chief Clarence Hunter, crews got the fire under control and extinguished within 30 minutes.
In all, 41 fire personnel on nine fire units were dispatched, but several units were quickly returned to service due to the quick work.
Hunter said the bulk of the fire was confined to the front area of the business, and investigators have deemed the fire as accidental, due to a malfunction in a drink dispenser.
