UPDATE: Fire at Culver's in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

UPDATE: Fire crews responding to a fire at an area restaurant during the lunch hour.

It happened at the shed of the Culver's in Dubuque on Asbury Road.

That's where they keep the dumpsters. Many of them damaged and melted.

When the fire broke out, the restaurant was packed with people. "I think everyone was scared, I'm really glad it was just the shed though, because it could've been a lot worse," said Kayla Musmarker an employee.

Fire crews put out the fire quickly before it reached the actual restaurant.

It was still open for lunch.

It seems the fire may have been caused by a cigarette.

There are no injuries.
