BALDWYN – Baldwyn firefighters put out a deep fryer fire early this morning at a local fast food restaurant.

The fire began in the deep fryers at Bumpers Drive-In on North Fourth Street. Firefighters were dispatched at 1:06 a.m.

Baldwyn Fire Chief Jerry Ozbirn said the fire suppression system over the fryers helped contain the fire until emergency crews could respond. Once on the scene, Ozbirn said they had the fire out within 10 minutes.

The building was not lost, but Ozbirn said it did sustain significant smoke damage.
