Joliet Fire crews were called to the scene of a structure fire at a restaurant in the 2000 block of W. Jefferson Street around 7:30 yesterday evening. Upon arrival to the Old Fashioned Pancake House, smoke was coming from the roof of the rear of the business, and entered the building to find more smoke and fire inside. The fire was under control within 20 minutes, and crews remained on scene for about an hour to extinguish and cleanup the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
In a Facebook post earlier today, The Old Fashioned Pancake House announced that they will be closed “until further notice”.
