El Centro Firefighters responded to a kitchen fire at a restaurant on South Fourth Street Wednesday afternoon.
An El Centro Fire Department engine just happened to be passing by The Panda City restaurant in the El Sol Center near 4th and Aurora when they saw smoke coming from the restaurant. The firemen stopped to investigate and found that employees were trying to douse a blaze in the kitchen. The ECFD crew quickly extinguished the fire. No other businesses were affected by the fire.
