Little Rock firefighters use a ladder truck to access the roof of Catfish City on University Ave. while responding to a fire in the restaurant on Friday afternoon.

There were no preliminary reports of injuries as a result of the fire.

That same restaurant burned to the ground around this same time of year in 2002. Probably should have been mentioned in the article just to add some interest.

I remember that, but it's a good thing ONLY the sign caught fire THIS time. Some restaurants are more prone to fire than others because of how they cook food, such as catfish joints (deep fryers).

I guess the fryers were over worked for Lent

A friend of mine says it could have been spontaneous combustion. The mortgage papers rubbing on the insurance policy.

Indeed. Wasn't the Cantrell location foreclosed upon?
