The TGI Friday’s in Manchester is evacuated this morning as the fire department responds to a fire.
The restaurant is located at 209 Hale Road and this is at least the fourth fire at the same location since 2006.
In October 2009, fire broke out at the restaurant and it was the third fire in three years. Firefighters battled the blaze for three hours and the restaurant was forced to close.
Manchester Assistant Fire Chief David Billings said at the time that it appeared the fire started in the grill area, got up into the hood space and the exhaust duct work from the grill, then extended out through the roof.
The extent of the fire today is not yet known.
