COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Taco Bell restaurant near Easton Town Center in northeast Columbus was damaged by a fire early Sunday morning.
Columbus Division of Fire Chief Steve Martin said crews arrived at the Taco Bell at 3834 Morse Road around 2:30 a.m.
Due to the fire's intensity, firefighters fought the flames from outside the building and did not go into the restaurant to avoid the building possibly collapsing on firefighters.
Firefighters got the flames under control around 3:10 a.m.
One firefighter was taken to Mount Carmel St. Ann's Hospital in stable condition to be treated for an injury sustained outside of the fire.
Officials said the fire may have been accidental, but investigators are still working to determine an exact cause.
