Cobb fire: Small grease fire catches in smoking pit of barbecue joint

An Acworth barbecue restaurant dealt with a small flare-up in its smoking pit Wednesday.

The fire was caused by grease catchings accidentally falling into the pit, Cobb County fire spokesman Lt. Dan Dupree told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday.

Firefighters were there less than an hour, and damage was contained to the smoker.

A manager at JD’s declined to comment when called Wednesday afternoon.
