Investigators say a stove that had been left on is to blame for a fire broke last night at a southeast Houston restaurant famous for its Chinese food.

Firefighters were called to the Original Timmy Chan restaurant on Scott near Old Spanish late last night and found the restaurant full of smoke.

Crews went inside and discovered a grease fire in the kitchen. They managed to put it out before it could cause any major damage.

The restaurant was closed at the time and no one was hurt. Firefighters believe the restaurant will be closed for a couple days.

The fire has been ruled accidental.
