BURLINGTON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Dinner was interrupted at one local restaurant when smoke began filling the building.

The Bob Evans in Burlington, Ohio was evacuated Thursday afternoon when a cigarette tossed into the mulch next to the building started a fire that burned though an outside wall, and then spread into a wall of the women’s bathroom.

Firefighters tell WSAZ.com that most of the damage was confined to the bathroom, although the entire restaurant filled with smoke.

No one was hurt and the restaurant is closed for the night.
