Around 10 o'clock this morning, Shepherdsville Fire Department personnel responded to the Long John Silvers restaurant on Joe B. Hall Avenue.
Upon arrival, firefighters saw that a fryer had apparently caught fire and the flames were taken up the exhaust system, exactly how the system is to work.
Fire Chief Layne Troutman reported that there were no injuries. The major damage was from smoke which filled the building.
There was no timetable on when the restaurant would reopen.
