UPDATE: Firefighters put out blaze at Colton's Steakhouse

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Jonesboro Fire Department spent almost 2 hours Thursday afternoon working a fire at Colton's Steakhouse on Parker Road.

According to Craighead County 9-1-1; fire officials reported seeing flames coming from the attic area of the restaurant when they arrived on scene. Firefighters say the fire was put out quickly, and the restaurant suffered only minor damage.

Police shut down Parker Road in both directions for about an hour so emergency crews could work.
