According to the Burnaby Fire Department, the fire was contained to the ventilation system and is believed to have been a grease fire. While there were heavy clouds of smoke above the building, the fire itself led to minimal damage.

The fire did not spread to any other businesses along the stretch, and there were no injuries to report.
