Crittenden County Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire just east of Marion on U.S. 60 just before 5 p.m.
The blaze was in a structure housing the barbecue pit at Hickory Heaven restaurant. Apparently, some cardboard boxes inside the metal structure caught fire when hot wood coals came in contact with them.
Damage appeared to be minimal and firefighters had the fire well under control within a couple of minutes of arriving.
The fire department cleared the scene at 5:18 p.m. after a little more than 15 minutes at the fire.
No injuries occurred.
