Fire damages kitchen of Wallingford restaurant


WALLINGFORD — An early morning fire damaged the kitchen of a Route 5 restaurant Wednesday morning.

The fire at Bobby Spurs Barbecue and Brews, 740 N. Colony Road (Route 5), was reported about 6 a.m.

Kyle Cipully, restaurant manager and son of the restaurant owner August Cipully, said the fire was reported by someone driving by.

Fire crews did a “great job of containing the fire and minimizing the damage,” Kyle Cipully said.

The restaurant smokes its own meat and he was told the fire might have started in the smoker, Kyle Cipully said.

The restaurant will most likely be closed for a few days, August Cipully said. The entire inside was renovated a few months ago.

“We will try to open as soon as possible,” August Cipully said.
