The Root Beer Stand reopens after kitchen fire

Posted by wlpo on May 23, 2016

Things could’ve been a lot worse after a fire broke out inside an iconic restaurant in Oglesby.

The drive-in diner was back open for business Saturday, a day after a fire broke out in the kitchen. Oglesby Assistant Fire Chief Steve Maltus says by time his crew got there, workers pretty much had the grill fire put out. The fire was contained to the kitchen.

Customers inside were evacuated just to be safe.
