Fire at Regina restaurant causes $150,000 in damage

The Regina Kebab House won't be serving food to anyone any time soon after a fire at the restaurant on Tuesday night.
At about 10:12 p.m., fire crews got called to the building on the 1800 block of Broad Street to find flames in the kitchen.
Gerard Kay with Regina Fire & Protective Services said the fire was in the kitchen and spread to the attic so crews had a bit of trouble getting it out.
There was extensive damage to the rest of the restaurant and some smoke damage to the adjacent buildings.
