A popular downtown Temple restaurant was damaged by fire and heavy smoke on Saturday night.

Firefighters responded to the Wes's Burger Shack & More located on 4th S. Main street in Temple around 10:15 p.m.

Fire crews encountered zero visibility inside the restaurant and had to clear out the dense smoke with a fan. A thermal imaging camera was used  to locate the fire in the ceiling which was quickly extinguished.

Investigators believe the cause of the fire was an electrical problem that started in the ceiling above a storage closet.

The fire has been ruled unintentional and no one was injured.
