A Sunday evening fire caused major damage to a Poteau (Okla.) restaurant.

Five fire departments responded to a fire at the Arena Steakhouse at approximately 7:13 p.m. The fire was thought to have started in the kitchen, and officials said the intense heat caused structural damage, as well.

The restaurant was vacant because it was closed Sunday. There were no injuries among the firefighters who responded, officials said.
