A Lubbock restaurant caught fire last Tuesday morning and was temporarily closed because of it.

Lubbock Fire Rescue is currently on the scene of a structure fire at the Gas Light Restaurant. The call came in at 6:40 a.m. on Tuesday, January 16th.

Crews arrived on the scene with smoke showing from the business. We do not know the severity of the fire because this is still an active scene but Lubbock Fire Marshal’s Office will investigate the cause of the fire.

They posted on Facebook saying they did not receive excessive amounts of damage.

The Gas Light is known to be an upscale lounge featuring specialty drinks and martinis and serving entrees, appetizers, burgers, and sandwiches. They have signature items including Gas Light nachos, bacon-wrapped stuffed shrimp, and so much more. Along with awesome daily specials.

They welcome small receptions in our private room and offer an outdoor deck that overlooks a playa lake. All their music begins at 10 p.m.

Now posted to Facebook saying they are "happy to announce that we have been cleared to reopen. So get ready to come see us tomorrow at 4."

They are even doing some puns about it.

Please send them love and be ready to support them now that they are opened back up. They have great drinks and food. Plus, it has an amazing view when the weather is nice.

You can find out more about them on their website. The Gas Light is located at 5212 57th Street Suite 100, Lubbock, TX.
