The fire spread fast through the building in which the Denny’s and Flying J shared, fueled by wind and kitchen grease. Luckily, customers and employees who were inside the building made it out safely.
There were approximately 50-60 semi-trucks in the parking lot at the time of the fire. All were able to leave safely.
The fire destroyed the building, and its flames spread near some fuel lines and also reached a fire truck, causing damage.
