Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Township Fire Department says grease in a ventilation unit is most likely to blame for a fire at an Eau Claire bar and grill. 

It happened at Double Days off London Road around 4:30 Thursday afternoon.  Traffic was re-routed for a short while as firefighters worked to put out flames.

According to Township Fire the building was evacuated but no one was hurt. They say the bar and grill is closed right now and won't re-open until the health department gives the thumbs up. There's no word yet on how soon that will happen.

Township Fire says the damage is estimated at $20,000 and the fire didn't spread any further than the kitchen and roof.
