DENISON, TX --A restaurant was evacuated tonight after workers smelled smoke in the building.

It happened around 7 p.m. Sunday at the North Rig Grill on the Highway 75 frontage road. Firefighters say they were called to a possible electrical fire. Everyone was evacuated and firefighters later discovered a faulty wiring breaker. They say it may have been causing the problem.

"We arrived on scene, we did not see any smoke. There was a strong smell of electrical odor," says fire Capt. Mark Escamilla, who is the acting battalion chief.

"They turned off that water heater and that fire's out so, no damage, should be good," says restaurant manager Brad Williams.

Several fire trucks and ambulances responded to the scene and part of Regency Lane was blocked off while they tried to figure out what was going on, and focused on a water heater in the side of the building. There was no apparent damage to the building, no flames, and no one was hurt.
