CROOKSTON, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Crookston authorities believe an overheated aerosol cooking spray can is to blame for a fire that caused heavy damage to a restaurant yesterday.

Investigators say the fire started in the kitchen of the Irishman's Shanty around 10:45 am.

The building's sprinkler system doused the flames, but not before the fire got into the ceiling area.

No cause has been confirmed but fire Captain Bob Magsam says he thinks the cooking spray exploded, starting the fire near the kitchen's exhaust system.
