A small kitchen fire was put out quickly at a midtown restaurant Monday afternoon.
Emporia Fire Battalion Chief Steve Kuhlmann says crews noticed smoke coming from the kitchen hood exhaust vents at La Hacienda, 1116 West Sixth, when they arrived around 4:30 pm. A crew used a fire extinguisher to knock down the small fire.
Kuhlmann says the fire was contained to the kitchen area. It's currently unclear what started the fire. No injuries were reported.
