PORTSMOUTH-Some scary moments Wednesday morning for workers at a Portsmouth fast food restaurant -- fire started in the deep fat fryer.

It happened around 1:40 a.m. at Wendy's, located at 3900 Victory Blvd.

"The fire was extinguished by the restaurant's fire protection system and didn't spread to the structure," Deputy Chief Jim Hoffler told WVEC.com.

The Health Department was to be notified because of the substance used to put out the fire.

No one was hurt.
