“We’re not clear at this moment whether there was a kitchen fire suppression system in place in this restaurant, but in most cases, this fire would have been manageable until firefighters arrived,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “It’s a shame that things like this happen, especially after the owners managed to suffer through 2020 and still be in business in 2021.”

If you own a restaurant, have your kitchen suppression system serviced regularly so you do not have to go through what the owner of Mike’s Penn Avenue Grille is now going through.
