2-Alarm Fire Guts Popular Bucks County Diner

Posted: Updated:
BENSALEM, Pa. -

Fire crews battled a  two-alarm blaze at a popular Bucks County diner for a few hours Friday morning.

The fire broke out just after 6:30 a.m. at the Nifty Fifty's on Street Road in Bensalem.

The diner opens at 6am and there were approximately 15-20 patrons inside of the establishment at the start of the fire.  8 employees were also working in the kitchen and dining room.

Employees tired to put out the fire which seemed to be coming from an attic where supplies were kept.

Unfortunately, the fire spread so fast, they had to evacuate.  Everyone made it safely out of the restaurant.

Firefighters, who had just battled a fire in Bristol in the early hours of the morning arrived on the scene and went to work.

There were no injuries.

The restaurant has been gutted and is a total loss.

Skyfox flew over the scene where it appears the fire is under control.

Several firefighters can be seen re hydrating just outside of the heavily damaged building.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
