A fire engine sits at the intersection of North Vine and Alvarado streets where a kitchen fire broke out in a restaurant early in the morning Saturday, March 31.

Firefighters from North County Fire Protection District and Camp Pendleton extinguished a kitchen fire in the 100 block of North Vine Street in Fallbrook early this morning.

The fire was first reported at 7:30 a.m. at the Mariscos El Pacifico restaurant located at 111 North Vine St., according to John Buchanan, a public information officer with the North County Fire Protection District.

"We were dispatched to a partial fire at the Mexican restaurant," Buchanan said, adding that upon their arrival firefighters found there was a fire in the kitchen on the cooktop.

"It was a grease fire that filled the whole building with smoke." Buchanan said. "Our guys were able to mitigate it."

Buchanan said there was no damage to the structure, just the cooking surface.

"The business will be closed at least until Monday, until it can be serviced and checked to make sure it is back up to a safe operating level," he said.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
