LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington business will be closed for some several days after an overnight fire left a huge mess.

It happened late Sunday night at the El Rey de los Pollos on Alexandria drive. Officials say the fire started in the kitchen on the stove.

When crews arrived on the scene they were able to quickly put out the fire, but officials say it had already caused damage to the kitchen.

Utilities had to be cut off to the building because of the location of the fire and workers will now have a lot of work to do before they will be able to reopen the restaurant.
