A fire that may have started in an outside charcoal grill and spread to the rear of a beloved City Park Avenue eatery briefly closed Bud's Broiler on Thursday.
The fire broke out just before 5 p.m. and damage was limited to the exterior, according to the owners.
The restaurant was expected to be open again by 7 or 8 p.m.
It is the second time the restaurant has been damaged by fire. It was closed for months after a fire in October 2012.
